A man who attacked a teenage boy with a hedgehog has been fined by a New Zealand court.
William Singalargh, 27, had asked his victim if he wanted to "wear a hedgehog helmet" before hurling the animal at the 15-year-old on 9 February.
A more serious charge of assault with a weapon — the hedgehog — was dropped. It carried a maximum penalty of five years in prison.
It was unclear whether the hedgehog was still alive when it was thrown, though police said it was dead when collected as evidence.
What a prick.
