That wasn't the first time birds or bats were killed at a West Virginia wind farm.
But according to Bland, even bird kills have not been a problem at the Mineral County turbines.
"I don't know that I've heard a whole lot about the wind farms either positive or negative," he said.
Keyser Mayor Randy Amtower also said that he has not heard many complaints from his constituents about the wind turbines.
Amtower said he owns property near Mount Storm that sits about 500 feet from a wind turbine. He said certain times in the day he can hear a "swishing sound," but it hasn't been too much of a nuisance.
"To me, it wasn't really a big deal," he said, adding that most of the time, if there has been a problem with the turbines, it's been taken up with the county.
