8 Animals That Ran for Government Office

Every once in a while, political parties or local groups will put an animal on the ballot for public office. Every once in a blue moon, that animal will be elected!

Pictured is Clay Henry III, the beer-drinking goat who was once mayor of Lajitas, Texas. Link

We used to own a Siberian husky who liked to drink beer and eat frozen chicken wieners, then finishing with a loud belch. I wonder if she was qualified to run for mayor too.

Wouldn't it imply that if animals can be elected, that from a legal point of view, they are a person? In which case, wouldn't killing an animal, even for food, equate to murder?
