    SHERIDAN — The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is taking all possible steps to reduce the risk of an outbreak of highly pathogenic avian influenza at its pheasant farms. The virus has been detected in a number of wild and domestic birds throughout Wyoming. Recently, HPAI was confirmed in three wild turkeys, found dead near the Sheridan Game Bird Farm. Out of an abundance of caution for the thousands of chicks soon to hatch, the department has depopulated the brood stock.
