CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is extending the deadline for public comment on its proposed recommendations for protecting wildlife from wind energy development.

The department released the draft document in November to provide guidance for wind developers seeking state permits.

The department said Wednesday that it's pushing the comment deadline from Friday to Feb. 1 because the wind industry and others asked for more time.

The 50-page draft document includes recommendations for collecting data, evaluating and mitigating the effects of wind development on wildlife.

The department plans to present the document to the Game and Fish Commission in March.
