Rescue Pit Bull Is Elected Town Mayor After Beating Out A Chicken And A Donkey
June 28, 2017
Meet Brynneth Pawltrow, the new mayor of Rabbit Hash, Kentucky!
Brynn was rescued by owner Jordie Bamfort when she was just a puppy, and beat out a cat, a chicken and a donkey to win the election.
Since being elected, Brynn has been fulfilling mayoral duties such as appearing at fundraisers, being pet by locals and taking naps by the river.
The small town of about 300 people doesn’t really need a mayor, but Rabbit Hash started electing animals as a part of a local fundraiser. Each vote costs a dollar, and residents are welcome to vote as many times as they want.
Brynn won with more than 3,000 votes while the first and second runner up gained more than 2,000 and 1,000 votes, respectively.
Money raised from the election goes toward town improvements.
Previous mayors have included Lucy Lou, a border collie that served eight years in office, and Junior, a black lab who loved making public appearances.
