Flesh-eating ‘Tranq’ drug leads to 150 ODs, 9 deaths in opioid-ravaged Florida county

Flesh-rotting fentanyl laced with the animal sedative known as “Tranq” has flooded opioid-ravaged portions of a Florida county, leading to 150 overdoses and nine fatalities over the last 18 months alone, officials said.

Orange County Sheriff John Mina said a shocking 80% of fentanyl seized during a recent takedown contained Xylazine, a powerful narcotic used to sedate animals during veterinary surgeries.
