    ORANGE, Conn. - An Easter egg hunt in southern Connecticut turned into a shoving match after pushy parents ignored the rules.

    Saturday's event at the Pez Visitor Center in Orange drew hundreds of people, some of whom didn't wait for the starting time, overwhelming Pez employees staffing the event.

    Pez General Manager Shawn Peterson told CBS affiliate WFSB-TV that people "rushed the field and took everything."

    Event organizers placed more than 9,000 eggs on three fields with the intention of having staggered start times for each age group.

    But Pez officials say the crowd moved from field to field without being directed to do so.

    Peterson said the crowd was "kind of like locusts."

    Pez in a statement apologized for "an unfortunate situation" and said the actions of a few turned the event into "a mess."

    "We sincerely tried our best to create a fun, free activity for everyone to enjoy," Pez said.

    No injuries were reported. Orange police did not respond to the event, but they did speak with company officials afterward.

    They probably all have Bible verses in their sigs, though.

    [​IMG]This photo depicts people waiting for relief supplies after the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. Can you imagine what would happen when these animals at the Conn. Easter egg hunt really were in need of something. It's not a race issue, it's a culture issue. The culture of the me me me society we live in. I'm sure there were plenty of decent people who watched the animals tell their demon offspring to go ahead and start collecting before the official word was given that wanted to speak up, but unfortunately it's just not worth it. The next thing you're in a fight in front of your kids. Why would anyone subject their families to anything like this? Stay home and hide your own eggs.

    No argument here...100% on the money. And in 20 years their kids will be the adults knocking kids over to get their kid's eggs. And so on and so on...
