"I'm pretty sure this is a wolf wandering my hall in Sochi."



Video by U.S. Olympic Luge team member Kate Hansen.

ADDED: Hansen lent her name to a hoax.

It looks old, and very comfortable in that environment.

I guess Kate McKinnon's crazy Russian villager character wasn't much of an exaggeration regarding Sochi.

Mike said...

Nice call Nonapod. I enjoyed that SNL skit although it seemed to go on too long. Now it does indeed seem prescient.

Looking for his sheep costume.

When I first saw the headline on Drudge, I thought it was about Wolf Blitzer desperately trying to find a story in Sochi.

traditionalguy said...

Now that is a good Russian sniper disguise. You cannot even see the rifle.

David said...

There are wolves wandering those halls to be sure, but not the canine type. No wolf would let itself get trapped in there. It's a dog.

Just step into the hall, say "here doggie" and you will see.

Irene said...

That doggie is looking for the sled team.

Hagar said...

Maybe a wolf-dog mix, but definitely a wolf.

Rusty said...

Siberian Husky. Mixed red and black.

Or maybe a Siberian Husky, Rusty.

Something else to whine about.

Sure this wasn't in the speed skaters dorm?

Bob Ellison said...

In Russia, wolf bar you from door!

Dan from Madison said...

Clearly a dog, and one that is well taken care of at that.

exhelodrvr1 said...

It will huff and puff and blow the Bill Clinton imposter.

Hagar said...

Huskies have broader faces. This one looks a bit like a Mexican wolf.
(And yes, that is a separate breed.)

Bob Boyd said...

He's wearing a collar.

Ladle Rot Rotten Hut

He was obviously on his way to dinner with the Russian hockey team.

Mark said...

Yes, this wild animal walked by without a look at the human.

Sure looks like a domestic animal to me. Well fed and in amazing shape, not the usual scrawny wild canid.

Rockport Conservative said...

Whatever it is, it is a beautiful animal.

MayBee said...

I'm not crazy about a US team member using a #sochifail hashtag. Seems poor sportsmanish.

Ralph Hyatt said...

It is a frightened dog. If it was a wolf it wouldn't have a collar on or be wandering around with its head down and it tail well on the way to under its belly.

Frightened wild animals are dangerous.

Here's a house to put... wolves at the door

Wolves, Lower

Suspicion yourself, suspicion yourself, don't get caught
Suspicion yourself, suspicion yourself, let others out
Wilder lower wolves.

Here's a house to put... wolves at the door

In a corner garden, wilder lower wolves
House in order, house in order, house in order, house in order
Down there they're rounding a posse to ride

Suspicion yourself, suspicion yourself, don't get caught
Suspicion yourself, suspicion ourselves, suspicion myself
Wilder lower wolves.

Here's a house to put... wolves at the door

UPDATE: Hoax.

Rusty said...

Siberian Huskies are pretty mild mannered.
They do like to run though.
And run. And run. And no amount of "come back here" is gonna get em back.
Until they're damn good and ready to come back.

Big Mike said...

Too bad the d*mn*d wolf couldn't have eaten Marie-Philip Poulin before the hockey final.

Apparently, this is prank played by Jimmy Kimmel.

Althouse got punked, hilarious.
