Big screen beauty Ashley Judd is opposing Sarah Palin's policy regarding an expanded program for the shooting of wolves from the sky in Alaska. In a video, which is shot in partnership with Washington-based Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund, Judd blasts the Alaska's governor for allowing Alaskans to run down and shoot wolves from the airplanes or helicopters and urges people to take an immediate action to stop Palin.

"When Sarah Palin came on the national scene last summer, few knew that she promotes the brutal aerial killing of wolves. Now, back in Alaska, Palin is again casting aside science and championing the slaughter of wildlife," Judd says in the video. She, moreover, claims Palin to have offered a $150 reward for the left foreleg of each killed wolf.

Worse, Palin plans to "introduce state legislation that would dramatically expand the aerial killing program by removing the few remaining scientific requirements from the program," Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund claims on its site.

Palin herself, who is an avid hunter and angler like many Alaskans, fires back, calling Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund an "extreme fringe group" that is "twisting the truth". Sticking to her policy, Palin insists, "Alaskans depend on wildlife for food and cultural practices which can't be sustained when predators are allowed to decimate moose and caribou populations. Our predator control programs are scientific and successful at protecting vulnerable wildlife."

I don't think Gov. Palin will budge on this issue. We should ask Lt.Gov.Parnell when he assumes office.

Judd, take your argument out of the void and into the real world. Your not a conservationist, you're a glory seeker.

Ms Judd should get into politics or take up wolf farming on her property.

Judd should stick to her "AIDS" thingie. This was just a blatant political attack on Sarah Palin. Why are the liberals so terrified of Sarah? Anyway, Judd probably lost half of her conservative fan base.

THANK GOD that Ashley is bringing this out into the open. Sarah Palin is nothing but a demented, sick individual to encourage this kind of behavior. Thank goodness that we had the smarts to not allow this woman to be the vice president of our united states!

Just another hollywood actor with an opinion. Get out and talk to America and not just a select few that agree with her.
