The village of Cormorant is taking things a step further. Its new mayor is Duke the Dog, a 7-year-old Pyrenees.

Duke was sworn in Saturday morning for his one-year term. He won’t get a salary, but he will get a year’s supply of Kibble for his service.

Cormorant is located about 3 1/2 hours northwest of the Twin Cities, just south of Detroit Lakes.

It has a population of 12.
