One of the more disturbing stories to come from Sochi during the winter games is the story of how Sochi is dealing with the stray dog population in the olympic village during the games. Stories ranging from city authorities rounding up strays and poisioning them to disposal, to local animals rights activists smuggling dogs to find owners elsewhere or outside of the tightly secure Olympic surroundings.
Now several Olympians have taken it upon themselves to begin adopting stray Sochi dogs including US Snowboarder Lindsay Jacobellis and US skier Gus Kenworthy.
Also, for the people wondering, I've lined up kennels 4 the pups & made vaccination appointments. Doing all I can to bring them home w/ me!— Gus Kenworthy (@guskenworthy) February 12, 2014
