Wolf Problem in Sochi?

Is there a wolf problem in Sochi? Well, no, there isn’t. It was a prank that pretty much every News Channel picked up and ran with. Watch the video below to see this “story” in action.

Jimmy Kimmel, along with co-conspirator Kate Hansen from the U.S. Olympic Luge Team uploaded this video on her Twitter account to see if the media would run with the story, and they did.

Does anyone else find it disturbing that our News Media doesn’t need to verify stories anymore and just runs with them? By the way, when I went to search for a picture for this article (Google: Wolf Sochi) every media outlet in the nation pretty much has this up with “Wolf Roaming the Halls in Sochi!” Funny, but kinda sad actually.
