"I t absolutely was a mess. This is a national park, and you’ve got tourists on the road right next to hunters with high-powered rifles. It really struck me as, 'you got to be kidding me.'

Jeff Soulliere, a Wyoming photographer, about Wednesday's scene in Grand Teton National Park when hunters surrounded a herd of elk and began firing.
