Forget the presidential election of 2008! It appears there’s an even bigger election coming up in the next few days. Rabbit Hash, Kentucky, a small burg with much history is looking to elect a new mayor. Among the candidates are 1-3 humans, and about 12 different animals including a poodle, cat, Collie and a miniature donkey named Higgins. Amazingly the humans are all in dead last place in the voting so far.

The previous mayor of Rabbit Hash was a black Lab dog named Junior who was elected in 2004. Junior sadly passed away this past June, leaving Rabbit Hash leaderless. Currently, Toby a Springer Spaniel is in the lead, but Higgins the mini donkey isn’t far behind!  You can read more about this and find out voting info by going to
