Daniel Radcliffe's dog guard

Daniel Radcliffe wants two ex-SAS soldiers to guard his beloved dogs.
The 'Harry Potter' star - who has been assigned a security team after receiving a death threat - wants the specially trained men to walk his Border Collies Binka and Nugget because he is petrified they will be kidnapped and killed by his crazed stalker.
The 18-year-old star also originally demanded 15 men guard him, but he was only assigned four - all of who used to work for the elite British army force, the Special Air Service (SAS).
His management reportedly responded to his initial request saying: "You're Harry Potter not J.Lo."
Daniel - who is currently shooting 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows' - was left fearing for his life after the deranged fan, believed to be in his 20s, showed up at his home and several of his favourite West London restaurants.
The stalker's threat - which was received via Warner Bros. who are producing the movie - has been taken so seriously that on Saturday night (01.03.08) the actor switched cars three times as he went to and from the film set.
Daniel's regular driver - used by the star for seven years and considered "part of the family" - has been temporarily replaced.
