The internet was on fire Thursday morning when Olympian Kate Hansen tweeted a link to a YouTube video with what appeared to be a wolf or large dog roaming what she claimed was her hall at the Olympic Village in Sochi.
But apparently this was an orchestrated hoax by late-night TV host Kimmel. According to the Orlando Sentinel and Kansas City Star, Sandy Caligiore, a publicist for the United States Luge Association, confirmed to Inside Edition that the video was a hoax. Caligiore said Hansen will Skype with Kimmel for the show that airs Thursday night.
