Occasionally, there may also be a handful of other wolves which can be related or not . Membership may be fluid and is subject to change . Outside wolves may be shunned or, though rarely, accepted, depending on the specific circumstances. Genetic variability can become limited within such an interrelated group, and so conditions for gene flow must exist . Outside wolves can provide these opportunities . A pack may be accepting of another wolf into their group if it is a distant relative , if reproduction rates are low due to loss or infertility of an alpha, or if their numbers are significantly reduced .
