Cheyenne, Wy – The state's Game and Fish Department has a new director. The governor announced that Terry Cleveland would take over the position. Cleveland has worked with the department in different roles for over 30 years. He replaces Brent Manning who resigned in September to take a higher paying job in his home state of Illinois.
Cleveland says he will focus on several issues many of which are in the headlines every day; endangered species, wildlife diseases, a decline in hunting and a lack of funding for the Department.
Cleveland suggests the state could consider new funding sources because the revenue from the federal government and from license fees is flat.
