Assault with a Hedgehog

A 27-year old New Zealand man has been charged with assault with a weapon - specifically, a hedgehog!

The man apparently heaved the animal at a 15-year old boy. It hit the teen in the leg, leaving "a large, red welt and several puncture marks." Police do not know if the hedgehog was alive or not when it was thrown, but it was deceased when collected as evidence.

If convicted, the 27-year old faces up to five years in prison!
