“According to the Sochi 2014 Organising Committee, all stray dogs that are found on the Olympic Park are collected by a professional veterinary contractor for the well-being of the people on the Park and the animals themselves. The dogs are being handled by professional veterinary staff, who carry out a full health examination off-site and look to locate the relevant owner. All healthy animals are released following their health check.”

Statement from the International Olympic Committee on the stray dogs of Sochi aka: #sochistrays. One team of athletes has reportedly adopted a yellow labrador they found outside their practice facility and many on social media have expressed concern and outrage after an AP story reported there was an extermination contract for the strays. This little guy was spotted near a bus stop in Rosa Khutor.
