Much to the chagrin of meteorite hunters around the world, it is a pooch from West, Texas who gets bragging rights to the recovery of a meteorite after a recent celestial shower over the area. Hopper, a stray Border Collie, found the meteorite and left it on local couple Pauline Alligood and Mitch Bynum’s porch. According to Rob Wesel, the collector who bought the stone, Hopper is the first dog in history to have recovered a meteorite.
