Crufts dog's death 'a horrible crime', says Belgian co-owner
The co-owners of Jagger, a dog who died after returning to Belgium from the Crufts dog show, have described the animal's death as ''a horrible crime''.
Co-owner Aleksandra Lauwers and her husband Willem said they did not believe the Irish setter's alleged poisoning was the act of a fellow exhibitor at Crufts.
''Hopefully Jagger was just the wrong dog, in the wrong place, at the wrong time, '' Willem Lauwers said in a statement to reporters.
The Kennel Club said it was awaiting a toxicology report from Belgian police.
