ONE OF THE usually peaceful springtime rituals of childhood — the Easter egg hunt — turned nasty at a US zoo.
Blame the mums.
The trouble began on Sunday afternoon, “when one woman reportedly pushed a child aside as her own child was scrambling toward some brightly coloured eggs”, according to the Seattle police department.
Police say the two mothers began fighting at the Woodland Park Zoo 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 puts it, that left officers without “any info that could crack the case.”
