BBC NEWS | Asia-Pacific | NZ man 'used hedgehog as weapon'

Police said William Singalargh, 27, had hurled the hedgehog about 5m (16ft) at a 15-year-old boy.

"It hit the victim in the leg, causing a large, red welt and several puncture marks," said Senior Sgt Bruce Jenkins, in the North Island town of Whakatane.


It was unclear whether the hedgehog was still alive when it was thrown, though it was dead when collected as evidence.


The police spokesman said the suspect was arrested "for assault with a weapon, namely the hedgehog."


Mr Singalargh is due to appear in court on 17 April. If convicted, he faces up to five years in prison.

Up to five years for throwing a hedgehog? I understand that if he killed the hedgehog by throwing he needs some serious help, but is this the kind of guy to put in prison?
