It should be obvious that while wolves will be absolutely protected in GTNP, the Park is so small it is almost meaningless-

All of Grand Teton’s wolf packs spend some, usually most of their time outside the Park, so Grand Teton’s concerns are much more likely to be valid than DOI’s, which is treating wolves […]
