Throughout history people have been so fed up with their political choices, they have sometimes opted to vote for an animal instead.
In 1959 , as a protest, the voters of Sao Paulo, Brazil voted for Cacareco, the rhino at the Sao Paulo zoo. With over 500 candidates running for the seat on the City Council, the five-year old black rhino won by a landslide.
Her campaign for the election was traced back to a group of students who were fed up with living conditions, food shortages and overall political corruption. Although her win was thrown out and a new election took place, she made history.
“Vote Cacareco” became a slogan to signify political protests, and she became the inspiration for the Rhinoceros Party of Canada.
