One of usually peaceful springtime rituals of childhood the Easter egg hunt turned nasty at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle.
Blame the moms.
A statement on the Seattle Police Department blotter Monday says the "hard-boiled tale" began Sunday afternoon, "when one woman reportedly pushed a child aside as her own child was scrambling toward some brightly colored eggs."

Then I shell continue to ping you.
And omelet you do it, too.
If they were, and this article is sourced in America,
you’ll never find out from reading it.
The chick is a Benedict Arnold. She will be in the Albumen of Peepetrators.
She could've at least asked the kid to "Move, Ova!"
It makes my mind start to consider defensive tactics in the coming EBT Zombie Wars...
The EBT Zombies seem to be easily distracted by Freesh It.
Perhaps if I littered the approach to my house with Freesh It, it would delay them long enough to implement other defensive equipment.
With this many bad puns on a thread, I’m surprised the AdMod doesn’t pullet.
Now he will. That post was the worst of the whole flock.
Once upon a time we lived in a VERY pale neighborhood. Our local supermarket would have an in-store egg hunt for the neighborhood children. Not heavily advertised, it drew about 100 kids and their parents. Very nice prizes were awarded, like MP3 players, giant solid chocolate rabbits, etc.
Even though the closest neighborhood of Holder’s people was over five miles away, word got out. One year, maybe a dozen children from outside the neighborhood showed up. The following year a couple hundred descended on the store. Holder’s people were pounding on the doors before the store opened, demanding to be let in. Once the hunt started neighborhood kids were pushed aside by these parents. Some blocked off either end of an aisle and kept the local kids out. The regular candy aisle was raided and stripped. Parents were seen taking packaged of cookies off the shelves, opening them, and passing them out to their kids. After the event the store looked like a war zone.
There was no egg hunt for a couple of years after, but then the store started having an “invitation only” egg hunt. Problem solved!
Like I said, nothing distracts an EBT Zombie like the prospect of Freesh It!
Well the sunny side of the story is that there was only one rotten egg in the whole bunch of Moms.
OK, Exit — enough with the egg puns! Stuff it!
The perp probably hatched her plan well in advance, and used the ol’ clutch & grab to get her kid through...
(If you get to them first, does that make you an egg beater?)
I’ve given up on the “Easter egg rush” events as being the rank opposite of the point of Easter. Hundreds of people going to great lengths for the opportunity to race and shove others to gather cheap candy & trinkets in a gross display of selfishness is completely unlike sacrificing oneself to save others. What a revolting spectacle.
