CHEYENNE - Terry Kreeger, supervisor of the Wyoming Game and Fish Department’s veterinary services branch, recently retired after more than 18 years of service. Kreeger began his Game and Fish career in 1995 as a wildlife veterinarian. In 1997 he was promoted to supervisor of the veterinary services branch. Before coming to Game and Fish, Kreeger received a bachelor’s degree in journalism, a master’s degree in wildlife biology, and doctorates in veterinary medicine and wildlife management.
Kreeger’s many accomplishments during his Game and Fish career include improving how the department samples, monitors, and manages brucellosis, chronic wasting disease, and other wildlife diseases. He revolutionized the way the department incorporates wildlife capture techniques into its day-to-day work and has represented the department through many professional organizations, teams, and committees involved with wildlife disease and animal health.
Brian Nesvik, Game and Fish Wildlife Division chief, said Kreeger’s 18-year career with the department demonstrated the highest level of achievement. “On a daily basis he took his roles and responsibilities within the department very seriously,” Nesvik said. “His work was accomplished with the highest degree of professionalism and was based on his deep concern for the health and well-being of all wildlife.”
