Guard dog destroys Elvis' teddy bear during museum rampage

LONDON (AP) - A guard dog in England has ripped apart a collection of rare teddy bears, including one once owned by Elvis Presley, during a rampage at a children's museum.

Barney, a six-year-old Doberman pinscher, tore the head off a brown stuffed bear once owned by the young Presley.

The bear, named Mabel, was made in 1909 by the German manufacturer Steiff.

The bear was owned by English aristocrat Benjamin Slade, who bought it at an Elvis memorabilia auction in Memphis and had loaned it to the museum.

Witnesses said the dog just went "berserk."
