A gray wolf was shot and killed Monday morning at a private in-holding within Grand Teton National Park. Park Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs says the person who shot the wolf is not being identified.  She says that individual immediately notified Wyoming Game and Fish Department wardens and they reported the situation to park rangers.  Park rangers and a park biologist responded to the area to investigate the incident. The wolf was a two-year-old male and was not radio-collared; its pack affiliation is unknown.  At the time of the shooting, this wolf was in the company of three to four pack mates.  The incident is under investigation by the National Park Service in consultation with United States Attorney’s Office, District of Wyoming. The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is conducting a concurrent investigation.
