A New Zealand man threw a hedgehog at a 15-year-old boy.
"He was arrested shortly afterwards for assault with a weapon," said Sergeant Bruce Jenkins of the Whakatane police. "Namely the hedgehog." (from Harper's Weekly)
Hedgehogs can be thoughtless blokes:
They'll spit, and curse, and tell rude jokes;
They'll take the largest pizza wedge,
And then at night, they'll hog the hedge!
