The DeJour Energy Co. plans to start drilling soon in the Garfield Creek State Wildlife Area south of New Castle. It's in an area where people have buried their pets.

Sherry Fairchild says she doesn't have a problem with drilling, but thinks the company should consider the pet owners' feelings.

Perry Will of the Colorado Division of Wildlife says people were never given permission to bury their pets in the wildlife area, but understands their concerns. Wildlife officials say they'll work with the company to resolve the situation.
