7 Farm Animals with Political Aspirations

Frederico the Goat

Frederico the Goat

In 1996, a goat named Frederico ran for mayor of Pilar, Brazil. Frederico’s owner, Petrucio Maia, filled out his goat’s nomination papers as a protest candidate in the municipal election.

Frederico appeared to make political enemies during his campaign.

Someone shot at a 50-car convoy that supported the goat when he was leading in the polls.
