The Tour de France was delayed when a bunch of French farmers cried wolf right on the spot where the 10th stage of the race was to begin. Apparently there had been a spate of wolf attacks on cattle and sheep, and the farmers decided to stage a protest in the Alpine town of Grenoble. The riders simply moved the start to a few kilometers away. No word on whether the protest also kept the wolves at bay.
