Sochi silver medalist has heart of gold
Before winning a silver medal in the inaugural Olympic men’s ski slopestyle competition, Gus Kenworthy kept himself busy.
The American freestyle skier has set the internet abuzz with his effort to send a family of stray dogs to the U.S.
As the Sochi Games started, Animal Rights activists launched a campaign to save Sochi’s strays.
A local company said it had been contracted to round-up the stray dogs.
The IOC said no healthy dogs were being destroyed during the roundup.
The plight of the strays apparently hit Kenworthy, he picked up four puppies and their mother on the streets and is making arrangements to have them sent home to Telluride.
