A small town in Kentucky has elected the French Bulldog as mayor.

Wilbur, a six-month-old puppy, was elected mayor of Rabbit Hash, Kentucky on Thursday.

Wilbur’s owner, Amy Norland, told NBC News that Wilbur’s campaign is based on all the negative media, elections, and Covid-19 surrounding the United States.

“I think Wilbur wanted to be something positive in the news,” she said.

She said Wilbur dealt very well with the stress of being a mayor.

“He did a lot of interviews locally,” she said. “He had a lot of pets, a lot of belly scratches, and a lot of ear rubs.”

Norland explained that the town “had no real people or people as mayor,” but the tradition was born in the late 1990s.

“There was a man named Don Claire who thought it was a great idea to choose some kind of animal (not necessarily a dog) as the mayor of the town,” she said.

She called Wilbur “abnormal” because she was purebred, but still considers him “very cute.”

Norland said he was raising kittens and cats. The rest of the town is an active community of dog lovers.

There are five Rabbit Hash dog mayors, which is always in line with the presidential election.

“It’s not political at all,” Norland said.

The French Bulldog is the fourth most popular purebred breed in the country for the past three years.
