Aggressive parents derail Georgia Easter egg hunt

Another traditional Easter egg hunt has fallen victim to aggressive parents, with event organizers in Macon, Ga., forced to cancel this week amid fears greedy moms and dads would become violent and trample on kids to grab eggs.

Joe Allen, founder of Kids Yule Love which organizes the Central City Park egg hunt, said previous bad behavior meant this year's event had become a liability because "parents caused a situation in which some children got hurt," The (Macon) Telegraph reported.

He said that a woman was hurt and several kids were trampled on at previous hunts as aggressive parents tried to get more eggs for themselves or their children.

"When people get hurt, they want some kind of compensation," Allen added.

It is not the first Easter egg hunt canceled because of pushy parents in the past month.

A free annual event held in Colorado Springs, Colo., was canceled in March because "aggressive" parents previously snatched too many eggs for their children.
