Lawrence is hedgehog heaven


You might've thought Judson King's 15 minutes of fame were up early this month, after CNN picked up the story of his efforts to make hedgehogs a legal pet in Lawrence, and he was interviewed on Fox News Channel's Fox and Friends show.But the national attention continues. Maybe by this point, he's just famous.CBS Evening News plans to be in Lawrence this weekend to tape a segment with Judson and his hedgehog, Little Luke. It's expected to air January 30.He was first featured locally at the end of December after he single-handedly convinced city commissioners to amend the city ordinance on pets to allow hedgehogs.

It died the first week, but they had it stuffed. When he does interviews, he wiggles it and tucks it in and out of his sleeve, as though it's playing hide and seek. Fools them every time.I am SO just kidding, and that was for you Judson, I hope you got a laugh! Maybe you can get a hedgehog puppet to see what Luke thinks of it. Do they make Robohedgehogs?Do you have a video camera so you can record him?

Was it ever said where Judson got the hedgehog? I would like some details on how he keeps it, what he feed it and that sort of thing.Judson is probably flabbergasted by all this.
