County Fair Lamb Stripped Of Title Over Performance Enhancement Drugs

An award-winning lamb was stripped of its title after being exposed for being given performance enhancement drugs.

According to the Daily Mail, 11-year-old Franklin Kinney was the proud winning exhibitor at a county fair in Ohio, but he had to give the award back after a required urine test revealed his winning lamb had the diuretic Lasix in its system.

Officials don't know how the Lasix got in the lamb's system, however, the winner was stripped of all prizes and awards because of it.

Diuretics are apparently used to dehydrate and make the muscle appear leaner, but the meat is harmful when consumed. Typically, animals shown in county fairs are sent off to the slaughterhouse afterwards.
