Champion goat tests positive for doping

Champion goat tests positive for doping

Colorado officials have disqualified the grand champion goat from this year's State Fair because they say it tested positive for an unapproved drug.

The Pueblo Chieftain reported Friday that a second goat entered by another child from the same family also was disqualified for the same drug.

Susan Weinroth of Sedalia says the family got a letter from the attorney general's office saying her family's goats tested positive for a feed additive approved for swine but not goats.

She suspects the food may have been tampered with and says the family reported their suspicions to officials. She says the family will appeal.

Disqualification means her daughter and son can't collect their earnings from the sale of the goats, US$5,500 for the champion and US$1,300 for the other.
