Dog elected as mayor of small town

Here’s a news story from Rabbit Hash, Kentucky (population 315). Recently, residents of this small town southwest of Cincinnati elected a pitbull named Brynneth as mayor!

But Brynneth isn’t the first canine mayor of Rabbit Hash. All of the town’s mayors — from 1998 until today — have been dogs. That’s a little strange, but it turns out that Rabbit Hash isn’t the only town to elect a dog as mayor. A pup named Duke has been elected mayor of Cormorant, Minnesota three times.

I suspect these pooches make better mayors than some of the humans who get elected. All the same, I don’t think I’d want my dog to run the city. She’d have us all digging holes and chasing squirrels.
