I remember this story in a book by Jack Vance (a fun scifi/fantasy writer) - don't remember what book nor the exact wording, but it went a little something like this:

Ina forest lived 100 squirrels and 20 wolves. They heared about democracy and thought it was a very nifty idea. So they instuituted it and when all was said and done the wolves had to live in trees and eat nuts.
