A goat has been elected as the mayor of a US Town.

A 3-year-old goat named Lincoln has been sworn in as the new pet mayor of Fair Haven, Vermont in the US.

Lincoln was dressed in a sash reading “Mayor” for the ceremony at the Fair Haven town offices.

Town Clerk Suzanne Dechame and the select board were present to deliver the oath of office.

Fair Haven, a town of about 2500 along the border with New York just west of Rutland, does not have an actual mayor.

Town Manager Joseph Gunter says the honorary pet mayor idea was conceived as a fundraiser for a playground, but it turned into a civics lesson for kids from local schools

Sadly, on the the way out of the offices, the new mayor went to the toilet on the floor – much to the amusement of the crowd.

  1. Goats rule the the world in one day and the official officers probably have a lot of work to do ?❤️
