Cheyenne - The Wyoming Game and Fish Commission will meet August 23 at 10 a.m. to discuss and vote on regulations related to raising greater sage grouse on commercial game bird farms. The meeting will be held in Casper at the Wyoming Oil and Game Conservation Commission, 2211 King Blvd.

The Commission will be asked to vote on revisions to Chapter 40, Regulation Governing Commercial Game Bird Farms as well as approve the new Chapter 60, Regulation Governing Greater Sage-grouse Raised on Private Game Bird Farms. The regulations are being done to address recent state legislation that allows certified game bird farms to possess, propagate, breed, raise, sell, release and take greater sage grouse within the boundaries of a game bird farm, and to collect sage grouse eggs from the wild for the purpose of establishing a captive breeding population.  

The public is invited to attend and comment on both regulations on August 23; an agenda can be found on the Commission webpage. The meeting will also be live-streamed on the Internet. Learn more and watch here.
