Officials say one of Ireland’s top greyhounds has tested positive for cocaine.
The BBC reports that after Clonbrien Hero took first place at the Irish Laurels final in Cork in July, the dog also managed to score top marks on not one but three separate drug tests.
Traces of the banned substance benzoylecgonine were discovered in Clonbrien Hero’s urine.

The dog’s trainer claims the substance was ingested on accident.
