Seattle Zoo's Easter Egg Hunt Turns Into Boxing Match

Seattle Zoo's Easter Egg Hunt Turns Into Boxing Match

What was supposed to be a peaceful Easter Sunday with the family turned into a horrific fight when two mothers got into it at Seattle's Woodland Park Zoo. The scrap was triggered by one woman allegedly pushing another's child so that her own child could access a bunch of Easter eggs. The other responded with a punch to the face. A great example was set that day.

According to Seattle Police Spokesman Jonah Spagenthal-Lee, the women had to be separated "three or four times." The combination of the woman's bloody nose and the steady stream of profanity left most of the children in tears. The bulk of the children were between the ages of 4 and 6-years-old; this spectacle was not the type of thing they needed to see or hear.

The woman who threw the vicious punch left before police arrived and the "victim" said she didn't want to press charges. Let's chalk that up to remorse.
