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.

Looks more like a Malamute with a tail-chasing habit. Interesting the animal issues in Sochi, though.

It was a setup by the Jimmy Kimmel Show and was shot at their studio in L.A.! They just wanted to see how far it would go on social media. At least Phil put a question mark on his headline.

BTW the animal is supposedly 80% wolf, and the rest dog. I don't think anyone can tame a full wolf enough to keep it as a pet.

The wolf was a hoax created by the Jimmy Kimmel show.
