Video: U.S. Olympian Films Wolf in the Sochi Hotel?
By Phil Bourjaily
Olympic accommodations in Sochi have made lots of news: unfinished hotels, unsafe water, and a host of other problems. Now this: a wolf in the halls?
American luge racer Kate Hansen shot this video of what she thought to be a wolf wandering the hallways of her hotel. She posted the video on YouTube and tweeted: “"Wolf in my hall?!? #SochiProblems #SochiFail".
The animal’s tail looks doglike, raising the question: Is this a wolf, a wolf-like dog, or some kind of cross (here's what a Eurasian wolf looks like)?
Whatever it is, it probably shouldn’t be running loose in a hotel during the Olympics.
