Officials fear dog was poisoned in Burnaby park

She was playful, well behaved, great with children - and she loved to chase sticks.
But that last attribute may have been Jada's undoing. The three-year-old mastiff died Friday night shortly after chewing on a stick, and authorities fear she was poisoned. A veterinarian who treated the dog suspects methamphetamines may have killed her.
"What goes on through someone's mind in this day and age, God knows," said owner Jamie Walton, who raised Jada from an eight-week-old and hoped to breed her with his other dog, five-month-old Euro.
It was only by chance Mr. Walton, his three-year-old daughter and the two dogs were in Burnaby's Kensington Park at all, he said. He usually took the water-loving mastiffs to the beach.
