During egg hunt, moms find a fight

Associated Press
 

SEATTLE – One of springtime’s usually peaceful rituals of childhood – the Easter egg hunt – turned nasty Sunday at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle.

Blame the moms.

A statement on the Seattle Police Department blotter Monday said the incident began Sunday afternoon “when one woman reportedly pushed a child aside as her own child was scrambling toward some brightly colored eggs.”

Police say the two mothers began fighting and had to be separated three or four times. The fisticuffs left one woman with a bloody nose.

Only one mother was still there when officers arrived. She said she wasn’t interested in pursuing charges against her attacker.

As the release put it, that left officers without adequate information to “crack the case.”
