Donkey, cat and seven dogs seek Kentucky towns highest office

RABBIT HASH, Ky. (AP) -- The race for mayor of the northern Kentucky hamlet of Rabbit Hash is turning into a real dog fight.

And, voting for one of the candidates will cost you, too.

Seven dogs, a cat and a donkey are running to succeed the prior honorary mayor of Rabbit Hash. Junior, a black Labrador retriever, held the post from 2004 until his death in May.

The Rabbit Hash Historical Society, which runs the small town along the Ohio River, charges $1 to vote, but allows voters to participate as many times as they are willing to pay. Proceeds benefit the historical society.
