Crying Wolf? Sochi Olympian Films Guest In Dorm

American luger Kate Hansen has found an unwelcome guest outside her room in Sochi.

"Wolf in my hall?!? #SochiProblems #SochiFail", Hansen tweeted, along with a YouTube video of the animal outside the dorm where Olympic athletes stay.

"I'm pretty sure this is a wolf wandering my hall in Sochi," she adds on the YouTube posting.

The video was published on Wednesday.

It was not immediately clear if the animal really was a wolf or a large dog.

There were thousands of stray dogs living amid the mud and rubble of Olympic construction sites, and authorities ordered a cull before the start of the Games which drew international condemnation.
