G'day stack-goers.

On page 43 of the first vol of the Spice and Wolf light novel, a part of a sentence reads... "しかし、もしホロが何か動物が姿を変えたものだとしたら" ...

Daft or not, I had to ask! How does the two が particles function in the above sentence together with 変えた and 姿を? I haven't had too much trouble reading thus far, but alas.

Thanks!

しかし、もしホロ何か動物姿を変えたものだとしたら...

You can parse it like this:

しかし、もしホロが X だとしたら...
If we assume that Horo is X.

Where X is:

何か動物姿を変えたもの
Some kind of animal that has changed form.
