Ashley Judd takes aim at Sarah Palin for pushing a program for the aerial shooting of wolves, with a graphic video for the Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund.

The group claims Palin offered a $150 bounty for the foreleg of each dead wolf.

Judd urges viewers to visit, “a national campaign dedicated to exposing Alaska governor Sarah Palin’s anti-conservation agenda.”

Palin is fighting back with a statement calling the group “reprehensible and hypocritical,” saying the ad campaign distorts the facts about Alaska’s wildlife management programs.

“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,” says Palin.

Palin urges readers to visit Alaska’s wildlife conservation website for more information on predator control in the state.
