    Dog Feared Poisoned at Famous Crufts Show; Owners Devastated

    LONDON—
    The co-owners of an Irish setter feared poisoned at Britain's leading dog show are devastated by his death but insisted Monday they don't believe that one of the other competitors is responsible.

    Three-year-old Thendara Satisfaction, known as Jagger, died Friday, shortly after returning to Belgium following an appearance at the world-famous Crufts dog show in the central English city of Birmingham last week. A veterinarian performed a post-mortem examination and found pieces of meat laced with poison in his stomach.

    The vet "found cubes of meat, some sort of beef, like steak, and they had been sewn up with poison inside,'' one of the owners, Jeremy Bott, told the BBC. "She thinks there were possibly two or three different types of poison,'' one of which was a slug killer.

    Police in both Belgium and Britain are aware of the incident, but authorities said they haven't been asked to investigate. The Kennel Club, which organizes Crufts, is awaiting a toxicology report on the dog's death - a report that could take days.

    Bott said he doesn't know what happened, but he believes the poisoner is someone with a grudge against dogs in general or the Crufts show in particular.

    The owners have ruled out any suggestions that another contestant might have poisoned the dog.

    There is "no doubt" a prize-winning Irish setter was "maliciously poisoned" at Crufts, one of his owners has said.

    Thendara Satisfaction, known as Jagger, died after leaving the Birmingham show. His owners say he ate poisoned beef.

    Co-owner Jeremy Bott said he did not think the dog was targeted, but the culprit may have been acting on "a grudge against dogs or the Crufts show".

    The Kennel Club said it was the only case of poisoning being investigated.

    Fellow owner of Jagger, Aleksandra Lauwers, said they had lost "our love, family member and best friend to our son".

    Mr Bott's wife, Dee Milligan-Bott, told BBC Radio 5 live: "I don't believe in my heart of hearts that this was another competitor or anyone involved in the dog world.

    "I can only imagine that it was a random act that somebody premeditated and wanted to cause total distress at the best dog show in the world.

    "It's not unknown for people to do things like this.

    "He was a typical Irish setter, totally trustworthy and so loved. We are devastated.
