ANCHORAGE, Alaska - The honorary mayor of the tiny Alaska town of Talkeetna is being treated for a punctured lung, bruised hips and other injuries following an attack.
The honorary mayor is a cat named Stubbs, and he was mauled by a vicious dog last Saturday.
Stubbs' owner, Lauri Stec, says the feline, who was elected in a write-in campaign 15 years ago, can receive a hospital visit from her for the first time Thursday.
Talkeetna doesn't have a human mayor.
