Barney Goes Berserk

Along the lines of the fox guarding the hens, Barney the Doberman pinscher was supposed to be guarding 1 million dollars' worth of bears at a children's museum.

One of the bears had belonged to Elvis Presley as a child.

Mabel, the teddy bear once cuddled by Elvis, is all chewed up.
A Doberman pinscher named Barney ripped Mabel's head off at the Wookey Hole Caves children's museum near Wells, England. Barney was supposed to be guarding hundreds of rare bears, but the museum's general manager Daniel Medley said "he just went berserk."
Barney chewed up all the bears, worth nearly $1 million.
Medley has spoken to the man who donated Elvis' bear to the collection and he said the man is "not very pleased at all." The bear was made in 1909 by the German manufacturer Steiff.
A security guard at the museum, Greg West, said he spent several minutes chasing Barney before wrestling the dog to the ground.
