US Olympian Kate Hansen meets 'wolf' in Sochi hallway

This, like everything else, is just a Jimmy Kimmel hoax.

Kate Hansen had a pretty amazing Olympics. The luger was overjoyed with her 10th place finish, became an internet sensation for dancing to Beyonce and now it's all capped off with a possible wolf roaming her halls... wait, what?

Hansen claims this is a wolf and it sure looks like a wolf, but it could also be a husky in wolf's clothing. We need a cynologist here right now to determine what's going on. Yes, that's someone who studies canines and yes we just Googled that to find out the name.

Update! We talked to several wolf experts, and this is not a wolf.

Update x2! This is a Jimmy Kimmel hoax. From the Orlando Sentinel:

ABC's Jimmy Kimmel orchestrated a hoax with U.S. Olympic luger Kate Hansen, Inside Edition reports. The syndicated magazine got confirmation of the video foolery from Sandy Caligiore, a publicist for the United States Luge Association.Moving forward, everything is a Jimmy Kimmel hoax unless specified otherwise.

(h/t ftw)
