Assault With A Deadly... Hedgehog?

A New Zealand man has been accused of assault with prickly weapon — a hedgehog... The Herald on Sunday newspaper reported that it was not known whether the hedgehog was dead or alive at the time of the attack, but that it was dead when collected as evidence.

Without a doubt that's going to end up in a short story somewhere.

Interesting if you could pull it off without making it comic.

Sounds much more effective than the dead cats I've been swinging at bad people.

Those Kiwis always think small — in Canada we kill people with Porcupines! Now that's a world of hurt ;-)

Apparently there were no gopher-chucks available.
