A goat has been elected as the mayor of a town called Fair Haven, in the United States of America after obtaining most votes.
The Goat known as Lincoln on Tuesday became victorious over 15 other candidates including Crystal the gerbil and many dogs and cats.
Lincoln’s 13 votes were enough for him to deafeat his closest opponent, Sammie the dog.
The goat, which belongs to a school math teacher, will get an education in the town’s major festivals which it will represent during its one-year reign as mayor.
The festivals include: “Memorial Day parade, the Apple Fest and the events we organize every Friday in the summer,” Gunter says.
The town manager, Peter Welch also made the announcement on Lincoln as the new mayor on Twitter.
