    ....when you pry it from my cold dead hands! :rofl:

    I wonder if these are CA legal? :noes:

    WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) -- A New Zealand man has been accused of assault with a prickly weapon -- a hedgehog.
    Police allege that William Singalargh, 27, picked up the hedgehog and threw it at a 15-year-old boy in the North Island east coast town of Whakatane on February 9.
    "It hit the victim in the leg, causing a large, red welt and several puncture marks," police Senior Sgt. Bruce Jenkins said Monday. The teen did not need medical treatment, he added.
    Police arrested Singalargh shortly after the incident, and charged him with assault with a weapon -- "namely the hedgehog," Jenkins said.
    At a hearing in Whakatane District Court on February 14, Singalargh's lawyer said he intended to plead innocent, The Herald on Sunday newspaper reported. The case is due to resume on April 17. If convicted, he faces up to five years in prison, Jenkins said.
    "People often get charged with assault for throwing things at other people," Jenkins said, although he admitted the use of a hedgehog as a weapon was "uncommon."
    It was unclear if he also would face animal cruelty charges. The Herald said the hedgehog was dead when it was collected as evidence, but did not know if it was dead or alive at the time of the alleged attack.
    The Herald reported Singalargh's arrest under the headline "Raise your hands and step away from the hedgehog."

    I can understand being arrested for assault, and even animal abuse, but for Christ's sake, assault with a DEADLY WEAPON? :ugh:

    Get real people.

    definitely not CA legal. it has more than 10 spines. porcupines will get you in more trouble though. there they are the the .50 BMG of the prickly animals.
