Alaskan mayor mauled by dog angry over new leash law?

by Justin

The mayor of Talkteena Alaska has been attacked!  For 16 years Mayor Stubbs has presided over the good people of this small Alaskan town.  While serving as the highest ranking member of local government can sometimes be a risky endeavor, never before has a small town mayor needed a secret service....until now.

Because Mayor Stubbs was mauled by a dog- brutally attacked by an animal in his own village.  How could this happen you ask?  Well...the mayor is a cat.  A cat who now has a fractured sternum, and a punctured lung, and a huge gash in his side.  He will survive, but the dog definitely got the best of the mayor.  

Was this a dispute over a new leash law?  Perhaps a new ordinance banning dogs from restaurants?  We'll never know- the dog refuses to speak.
