Jimmy Kimmel behind wolf in Olympic village prank

Sochi - Olympic organisers are laughing off the prank by a U.S. luger involving a wolf supposedly prowling the athletes' village, and say no disciplinary action is being taken.

American talk show host Jimmy Kimmel said Thursday he cooperated with luger Kate Hansen to post a fake video of a wolf wandering the hall outside the athlete's room in Sochi. 

Instead, Kimmel's staff rented a wolf and built a set in Los Angeles that was a replica of the dorm and filmed the animal walking around.

International Olympic Committee spokesman Mark Adams says "it made me kind of laugh as an individual, not as an IOC spokesman."

He says "I don't think there's any harm done" and "I don't think it's anything serious."

The U.S. Olympic Committee declined comment.

Kimmel previously pranked the world when his Worst Twerk Fail EVER video hit the internet showing a young woman catching fire after her twerking antics went horribly wrong. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
