The explorers also carried with them a church organ from Dorset as a gift to local Bolivians in order to secure their help with finding the meteorite.

But, as if that weren't enough, the actual subject of the article is the alleged spotting by Colonel John Blashford-Snell of a Crumple-Horned Snorkack Double-Nosed Andean tiger hound, a dog with two noses.

It should come as no surprise that Blashford-Snell is the Honorary Life President of the Centre for Fortean Zoology.
