Easter egg hunt canceled after parents got violent

MACON, Ga. (AP) — An annual Easter egg hunt in central Georgia has been canceled after organizers say parents became violent while trying to collect eggs for themselves and their children in past years.

This will be the first time in years that the Easter Bunny won't be visiting children during the annual egg hunt at Central City Park in Macon, traditionally one of the largest Easter events in central Georgia.

Bibb County Commissioner Joe Allen tells The Telegraph of Macon (http://bit.ly/HPI8OJ) that liability concerns led to the cancellation.

Allen is founder and CEO of Kids Yule Love, which coordinated the event.

Allen said he canceled this year's hunt because parents caused children to be hurt. He said that in past years, one woman was injured and several children were "trampled on."

This is about as stupid and sick as a story can be. Parents screwing up a simple Easter egg hunt. There must be some racial overtones we are missing. Doesn't everything have that nowadays?
