Skip to comments.Ashley Judd, Sarah Palin at odds over aerial wolf hunt
Posted on 02/07/2009 2:21:10 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Actress Ashley Judd says a wolf management program backed by Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is "incredibly savage ... it's not right, it's not appropriate, it makes no sense on any level."
Appearing on CNN's "Larry King Live," Judd repeated her criticism of a program that allows hunters firing from aircraft to shoot wolves to thin the numbers of the animals.
Judd recently appeared in a video for the Washington-based Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund, which also opposes the Palin-backed aerial hunting program. Referring to the former Republican vice presidential candidate by name in the video, Judd says that Palin is "championing the slaughter of wildlife."
"When Sarah Palin came on the national scene last summer, few knew that she promotes the brutal aerial killing of wolves," Judd says in the video, adding, "It is time to stop Sarah Palin and stop this senseless savagery."
Palin responded on Tuesday, releasing a statement calling Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund an "extreme fringe group," and saying, "It is reprehensible and hypocritical that the Defenders of Wildlife would use Alaska and my administration as a fundraising tool to deceive Americans into parting with their hard-earned money."
Judd said Alaska's program is a "distortion" of wildlife hunting under normal circumstances, and that the program attracts "urban hunters, trophy hunters from out of state."

I can’t imagine mimes having much to say, but damned if they’re not furiously waving their arms and flailing about.
Get em Sarah.............
Right to the point, and non politically correct.
That’s what we need in a true representative of the people.
When their Hollywood careers dry up, they always find a Republican to attack.
From her grasp on the topic she’s chosen to spout about, I can see why she picked such lousy scripts to film.
Be fair. I’m sure Judd is an expert on condom deployment.
Better question? Why rise to the bait?
When leaders get in fights with celebrities they never win in the long run.
Governor Sarah Palin says an unlimited program to abort human babies backed by actress Ashley Judd is “incredibly savage ... it’s not right, it’s not appropriate, it makes no sense on any level.”
Ashley Judd knows nothing about wild animals, wildlife management, or hunting. This is simply another Bash Palin ploy.
Just another non informed and non thinking celeb signing on to get her name out there.
I think what she said is very telling. She said that Sarah Palin must be stopped, not the aerial hunting, those words “must be stopped” that is a Democrat liberal way of talking when they fear that they are about to lose. Ashley Judd can give a rats ass about the wolves, she and the other damn libs just want Sarah stopped so that she won’t win in 2012
I don’t think I have ever been so furious with a celebrity. Even Rosie O’Donnell doesn’t make me as mad.
Come to think of it, Rosie said nice things about Sarah.
I’ve got 4 email address, so today I sent the DOW an email from each with subject lines like: Judd has inspired me to donate; Another donation on the way because of Judd. The body of the email contained the link to SarahPAC.
I also sent them an email suggesting that their poster girl could have herself airdropped into Alaska where she could perform abortions on wolves. I’m sure that would be acceptable to her, since she’s a pro-abortion fanatic.
Actually, she played one good part, but can’t remember what it was at this time!:)
Nice! hahaahahhaa So so true.
I wonder if Ashley Judd is interested in saving aborted babies.
Because as the past federal administration proved, when you don’t defend yourself, the opposition is free to define you to the public. And it’s not a fight; the governor’s office responded to the falsehood and that’s all they need to say on the topic.
