      Chad,
      Yes, I agree, since the den leader is the person the cub scout knows best.
      Of course there is a possibility that the den leader is the abuser. In that
      case things get a lot trickier, and completely depend on the setting the
      disclosure was made in (worse case scenario: den leaders house).
