    [​IMG] Security guard Greg West does not know what made Barney do it

    A £40,000 teddy which used to belong to Elvis Presley was among scores of toy bears destroyed when a dog meant to guard them went on the rampage.

    Dobermann Barney was looking after the rare Steiff bear, named Mabel, which had been loaned for an exhibition at Wookey Hole Caves near Wells, Somerset.
    The dog ripped the head off the bear and attacked scores of other teddies. Barney's owner could only suggest that the bear had a rogue scent on it - or that Barney had become jealous of it.

    No, I haven't the faintest idea why you need to know this. I guess you might ask why any sane person would want to pay money to visit an exhibition with a dead rock star's teddy bear in the first place ...

    Lol! Wookey Hole Caves....sounds like something from 'Star Wars.'

    I wonder what the teddy bears said to make the poor dog so angry?

    Damn, you beat me to it. You guys should know that this is pretty big news over here. Poor Barney's career as a guard dog might just be over...

    Well, of course, that's just because there isn't any news right now (unless you count the world going to h*ll in a handbasket -- but let's leave that to the Political Forum :) )
