SOCHI, Russia – The 2014 Olympics have had its ups and downs, with some of the downs published on Twitter under the hashtag #sochiproblems.
Adding to the list of problems during the Olympic games, Kate Hansen, a BYU sophomore and a member of the Team USA's women's luge team, posted a video on her YouTube channel of what she says appears to be a wolf roaming the halls of her hotel.
The video and tweet went viral with more than 700,000 views and more than 2,000 retweets.
