Last year, five animal candidates vied for the much sought-after title of Mayor of Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo. This important election decided the Zoo’s first Mayor, the highest-ranking animal official who showcased the important role of animal ambassadors. One of the five candidates, (and my favorite), who made it past the primary rounds to the general election was:

Peaches the Nigerian dwarf goat. Peaches is the mother of two sets of triplets and a set of twins. She has raised all the kids on her own, demonstrating her can-do spirit. She’s quiet and friendly unless she needs to assert herself and is rarely in a baaaaad mood.

P.S. Wiggles the Chinchilla got the most votes and won by a hair.

  1. It doesn’t matter who you vote for, just vote. It’s sad that people think an election is rigged just because more people who were legally eligible actually did come out and express their right to have a voice. We live in a country where barely half the eligible voters take the time to do it – which is why it’s a surprise when circumstances rallied more to do it – on both sides! Efforts to suppress this right are anti-democracy
