NZ man ‘used hedgehog as weapon’
A man in New Zealand has been charged with using a hedgehog as a weapon, the New Zealand Herald has reported.
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.
Now is the time people, we must march on Washington and get these weapons banned! If that had been a no-nothing presidential aide who was grievously injured in this attack we’d already have a 5 day waiting period and special licenses before you’d be allowed to carry a hedgehog in public!
I know there will be some people out there who claim that when hedgehogs are outlawed only outlaws will carry hedgehogs, but dammit I do not accept that! In a world without hedgehogs people would feel safe to walk the streets again, the elderly would no longer fear the night, and violent crime would all but vanish!
So, while you might say “You’ll have to pry my hedgehog from my cold dead hand,” I say “when all the hedgehogs are gone you’re hand will shake mine in gratitude.”
Let us rise up and ban this threat to the lives of our children! Just say no to hedgehogs!
