Tourists climbing Africa’s highest peak at 5,800 metres spotted a lone dog seemingly living in the vicinity. The tip of the mountain where the dog was seen is usually snow capped with stony plains and has a usual temperature of between -4 and -15 degrees centigrade. One of the tourists noticed the dog lying less than a metre away from him on a rock and used a camera phone to take verifying pictures. More amazingly a spokesman for the tour operator noted that this was not the first time that a dog had been spotted high up the mountain with one seen at Baranco camp (3,960 metres above sea level) on the mountain 10 years ago.
