    Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn found herself in the hospital when she tried to break up a dog fight in Colorado.

    In an Twitter video posted Saturday, Vonn showed off her bloody hand that was caused by a tussle between her own pets. "Tried to break up my dogs fighting over a Frisbee and this is what I amazing @jimmyfallon belated Halloween costume!" she wrote. "Thx @leoandbearvonn. Thx Dr. Viola for fixing me!!!"

    From the looks of things, 31-year-old Vonn ultimately needed a few stitches. Vonn is devoted to her two dogs — Leo and Bear. They even have their own Instagram page.

    As for the Fallon comparison, "The Tonight Show" host recently made headlines when he tripped and fell when accepting an award at Harvard University. He later shared a picture of his hand with the caption, "Nothing that a few band aids couldn't fix."

    Back in June, Fallon also had to have minor surgery after injuring his hand at a Manhattan apartment.

    Fast-forward to today and the late-night host had no trouble poking fun at himself when he sent well wishes to the athlete.
