CHICAGO (CBS) — The girl cried wolf!

Olympic luger Kate Hansen posted a video on You Tube that purportedly showed a wolf on the prowl in a Sochi Olympic dorm.

Hansen headlined the video: Epic #SochiFail: Wolf In My Hall. It has been viewed nearly one million times.

It turns out the be a hoax, with the help of viral video prankster Jimmy Kimmel, according to numerous media reports.

Kimmel has done this before, if you’ll recall the twerking woman who was set on fire after her “roommate” opened a door and sent her crashing into a glass table with lighted candles.

Early in the Olympics Games, there were several funny examples of so-called #SochiFails, including brackish “dangerous face water” and other amusing mishaps.
