An award-winning lamb is currently under investigation and may be stripped of its title after veterinarians at the Australian Sheep and Wool Show in Bendigo found illegal drugs in its system.
Lamb Armstrong, a grand champion lamb was given performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs), which is banned from competition.
Judges noticed Lamb Armstrong’s strongly defined legs and bleating with the voice of a bull.
“We don’t know how he got them the PEDs,” said owner Barry Dare.
“There’s a ribbon at ‘steak’ here! Who wouldn’t go to any length to obtain one of those?” a judge said.
A problem with PEDs is while they give the lamb an unfair advantage, they are tastier to New Zealanders and foxes but taste worse when cooked on a Weber.
Lamb Armstrong was due to start filming Babe 3 with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Magda Szubanski in 2 weeks but has been cut from the movie due to allegations. He was allegedly training with Schwarzenegger for the role of Sheep 1.
“I’m sorry, PEDs are baaaaaaaaad. I will never do it agaaaain” Lamb Armstrong said.
