Man charged with assault for throwing Hedgehog at boy
A man accused of lobbing a HedgeHog at a boy has been charged with assault.
Cops claim William Singalargh used the animal as a weapon in a bizarre attack on the 15-year-old in Whakatane, New Zealand, in February.
Senior police sergeant Bruce Jenkins said: "It hit the victim in the leg, causing a large, red welt and several puncture marks."
A hearing at Whakatane District Court has been adjourned to April 17. If found guilty, Singalargh, 27, could be jailed for five years.
Vest Say's I heard about the Aussie kid having an 'Echidna' chucked at him, it seems now the Kiwis have to get into the act too.
"Is the Hedge Hog a native in the land of the long white cloud"?
Growing up in England I had several Hedge Hogs as pets, They were all called Spike and they had an uncanny way of escaping.
Hedge Hogs were a Gypsy delicacy. They were spiked throogh the head -gutted washed and rolled in red clay and placed in the embers of the camp fire, when cooked the clay and spikes removed to reveal a delicious meal.
Hey Wally our Aborigine blogger, do The indigenous blokes in Strayer cook the Echidna?
Dont tell me it is eaten raw.
