Update: Oh ha ha ha. The Sochi "wolf" video is just a Jimmy Kimmel hoax, orchestrated with Hansen's help. As far as we can tell from Inside Edition's report, the late night host hilariously convinced an Olympic athlete to lie about the species of a dog in her hallway. The dog was, we guess, placed there deliberately.
Original post: Beyoncé-loving American luger Kate Hansen has her own #SochiProblem. It's a wolf, apparently wandering the halls of the Olympic Village. At least, that's story being told in this video that she uploaded to YouTube and an incredulous tweet that made us all shake our head and chuckle and think "In Sochi, anything can happen!"
But isn't this whole "wolf in my hallway," thing a little suspicious, even in a town known for its numerous packs of wild orphan dogs? Is that even really a wolf at all? Is this just a prank by sadly-sober Kate on her partying friends?
Being sober at every party of life puts me at a severe disadvantage of keeping up with my team. I'll dance but then I'm out #mormonproblems
The Internet has heard Kate cry wolf, and it kind of sounds like she might be crying wolf. After agreeing that the wolf was more likely some type of wolf-like stray dog, everyone started fact-checking the YouTube video. Some found a way to link this whole wolf thing to the only other nugget of information most Americans have about Hansen, which is that she loves Beyoncé
According to Fox, she might even love Beyonce so much that she can't tell a wolf from a dog.
Hansen, who grew up in Southern California and is best known for being a big Beyonce fan, may not know a husky from a timberwolf.
Even if it wasn't Beyonce who clouded her vision, experts agree that probably wasn't a wolf. Of course, that's doesn't totally explain why a husky has the run of the Olympic Village either.
