Purrfect mayor: US town roots for feline mayor attacked by dog
ANCHORAGE (AP) - A US town's honorary mayor, Stubbs the cat, has been badly injured in a vicious dog attack.
The quirky Alaska community of Talkeetna elected the cat in a write-in campaign 15 years ago.
But now Stubbs is sedated and under veterinary care.
Saturday's attack left him with a punctured lung, bruised hips, a long deep gash on his side and a fractured sternum.
