Anger over dog's death.

THE owners of the Irish setter wrongly thought to have been poisoned at Crufts have said the "true facts" surrounding its death may never be known.

The co-owners of Thendara Satisfaction, (aka Jagger), also criticised the Kennel Club's handling of the "media circus" after the dog's death.

The Kennel Club said a toxicology report had shown the dog, which died on return to Belgium, could not have been poisoned while competing at Crufts at the NEC.

The animal's co-owners, Aleksandra and Willem Lauwers and Dee Milligan-Bott and her husband, accused Crufts officials of sending "cold" emails during attempts to establish what happened to the dog. They said: "We accept we will never know the true facts of why, where and when Jagger ingested poison which resulted in his death. We wish now to draw a line under this tragedy. We are extremely disappointed by the way the Kennel Club have handled the events surrounding the death of Jagger."
