SEATTLE - 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 Monday on the Seattle Police Department blotter said 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."
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 left when officers arrived. She said she wasn't interested in pursuing charges against her attacker. As the release puts it, that left officers without "any info that could crack the case."
