Ashley Judd is on the warpath when it comes to wolf-killer Sarah Palin, who is calling upon Alaska’s trigger-happy rednecks to shoot wolves by offering a $150 bounty on their heads.
Judd came to the defense of the wolves last week, narrating a video on behalf of Defenders of Wildlife, lambasting the former Vice Presidential nominee for the aerial wolf slaughter. Palin responded calling Judd’s video “reprehensible and hypocritical” for trying “to deceive Americans into parting with their hard-earned money.”
Of course, The View‘s Elisabeth Hasselbeck added her two cents on the matter, somehow managing to tie the issue to abortion. Hasselbeck said, “The problem that I have here is like a lot of these vocal celebrities, in a way, get very loud about these animal killings. Like is she loud as – she said, ‘How many wolves have been killed? 900 this year.’ Is she as loud about the 260,000 kids killed in abortions?”
In retaliation, Judd appeared on Larry King Live Friday night to take another shot at the Alaskan governor as well as Hasselbeck.
Judd told King, “What is really important is to maintain a healthy and natural ecological balance between predators and prey. And allowing wealthy humans, primarily urban hunters or those who are bounty hunters from out of state, to go to Alaska and for sport hire airplanes, hire private pilots to fly around and kill wolves in this incredibly savage manner, it’s not right. It is not ethical. It is not appropriate. It doesn’t make sense on any level.”
