Mayor of Divide, Colo. has a snout

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- It's a political race where the candidates were fighting like cats and dogs. And horses. And hedgehogs.

Meet "Pa Kettle." The bloodhound is the new unofficial mayor of Divide, Colo. The town is just northwest of Colorado Springs and doesn't have a human mayor.

So, every couple of years, the local animal shelter holds a special election fundraiser. Each vote costs $1, which goes to the shelter. This year "Pa Kettle" beat out a cat, a wolf, a hedgehog, a horse and several other dogs for the title.

The bloodhound will be inaugurated next week.
