A later replica of a 1920's Steiff bearAssociated Press reports that Barney, a Doberman pinscher and guard dog at the children's museum near Wells, England, went berserk and ripped apart a collection of rare teddy bears that were on display.

Among the "victims" a bear made by German manufacturer Steiff in 1909 and once owned the young Elvis Presley.
According to the article the man who owns The whole teddy bear collection is valued at $900.000. According to the article the bear with Elvis connections was owned by English aristocrat Benjamin Slade, who bought it at an Elvis memorabilia auction in Memphis, Tenn., and had loaned it to the museum. He is not very pleassed at all.

That was today's News Of The Weird from the world of Rock N Roll... I just had to share it. Oh! And the bear pictured is not the Elvis bear. It's a younger relative.
