PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) -- Animals at the Colorado State Fair are getting tighter security following a food-tampering issue last year that led to the disqualification of two goats, including one that won grand champion.
Officials say the animals ate tainted feed that had been placed in their pens during the fair. The goats were later disqualified after testing for a banned substance.
According to the Pueblo Chieftain, the animals became sick but still sold at the Junior Livestock Sale.
