More doping

This time, it's pigeons. And the Royal Pigeon Racing Association is trying to put a stop to it! I kid you not:

"The droppings are collected from the loft, placed in the containers, put into the bag and sent back to us here at Cheltenham."

The reason the association needs to get tough is because there is big money at stake in pigeon racing. Competitors can win up to £20,000.

If pigeon-handlers will dope their birds, is there any hope for drug-free racing of any kind?
