Elected official attacked – seriously injured

Not a South African headline, despite our alleged issues with respecting democratic elections.

No, this one comes from Alaska and concerns the mayor of Talkeetna who has been in office for 15 years.

The mayor of Talkeetna is a cat called Stubbs.

Stubbs was attacked by a dog. You can’t make this sort of stuff up.

I think we all hope that Stubbs makes a quick and full recovery. And I would guess that he’ll be introducing some sort of anti-canine legislation as a matter of urgency as soon as he gets back into office.
