Goat performs first task as mayor of a Vermont town

Fair Haven, Vermont, has a new honorary mayor called Lincoln. On Tuesday, the three-year-old goat was sworn into office, wearing a sash with the word “Mayor.” As officials gathered to deliver the oath of office to Lincoln, he performed his first mayorial task – he pooped on the floor of the offices, leaving the clean-up to the town’s police chief. The honorary pet mayor idea was thought up as a fundraiser for a children’s playground.
