    WELLS, Maine, April 1, 2014 — A wild turkey of the species Meleagris gallopavo has been hired as the new president of Laudholm Trust, the local nonprofit partner of the Wells Reserve at Laudholm, according to Goose Read, chairman of the Trust's Brood of Defectors. A search committee composed of Laudholm Trust brood members and a consulting coyote chose the turkey after reviewing a strong field of candidates from around the Reserve's 2,250 acres. The turkey will work with departing Trust President Nik Charov on the transition.
