Best - Gus Kenworthy works to adopt the stray dogs of Sochi
After news leaked out that Sochi, in preparation for hosting the Olympic Games, was taking care of its stray dog "problem" by poisoning pups, the international uproar was almost immediate. More importantly, so was the move to action. First Gus Kenworthy, who won the silver in men's slopestyle skiing announced he'd be bringing home five dogs. Then, snowboarder Lindsey Jacobellis came back to the U.S. with a puppy. Hockey team members and the men's ice hockey captain all announced plans to bring back dogs, and Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska reached out to Kenworthy to help make sure his puppies get on a plane -- Deripaska also plans to open a shelter to accommodate 250 strays. Regardless of the final medal count, a whole lot of homeless dogs look like the winners from this Olympics.
