Officials confiscate 'alien' foot after raid on UFO museum in Argentina

A number of allegedly extraterrestrial-related items were seized after police descended on the Museo del Ovni.
Situated in the Victoria area of Buenos Aires, Argentina, the popular tourist attraction, which is known as the Museo del Ovni (which translates to UFO Museum), has been based in the home of UFO researcher Silvia P rez Simondini for almost 20 years.

Inside, visitors can browse an extensive collection of UFO-related items ranging from archival material and newspaper clippings of famous cases to objects that are alleged to be of alien origin.

The museum also houses archaeological relics believed to have extraterrestrial significance and it was mostly these that authorities were interested in when they raided the premises.

In total, they confiscated some 60 items - most of them archaeological artefacts including a mummified foot that had been advertised as that of an extraterrestrial entity.
It turned out that the foot was among the objects that had attracted the attention of the Peruvian Embassy which alleged that the museum was in violation of an agreement that exists between Peru and Argentina regarding archaeological artifacts and relics.

When the embassy informed authorities in Argentina, the decision was made to raid the building.

Simondini has since argued that the foot had been found by her sister in Peru and that they had offered it to various museums but none had been interested in taking it.

She also claimed that many of the other confiscated items were found in Argentina.

It remains unclear whether or not she will face criminal charges.

I could be on either side of this. No proof it is an alien foot. The police is that country are not always reliable.

If it is supposedly alien it is probably in reality a deformed animal foot. If it is a possible human foot than they deserve to be raided.

As a matter of interest, do we have a picture of this alleged alien foot anywhere?
