Ashley Judd Urges President Obama To End The War On Wolves

In a Defenders of Wildlife TV spot airing in Washington D.C. this week, actress Ashley Judd urges President Obama to restore the Endangered Species Act protections for wolves in Idaho and Montana. The protections were removed last March when U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar approved a controversial Bush administration plan to delist the gray wolves.

President Obama, hundreds of wolves are being hunted and killed in the Northern Rockies,” says Judd. “This spring even pregnant wolves at their dens will be targeted. You promised change but by adopting the Bush plan your administration has weakened our Endangered Species law and has allowed this killing to happen. Mr. President we ask you to restore the law and stop the killing.”

Judd teamed up with Defenders of Wildlife in the past with a campaign called “Eye on Palin” which condemned Sarah Palin for her promotion of aerial wolf hunting and accused the former Alaska governor of suggesting $150 bounties for the severed foreleg of each killed wolf.

Defenders of Wildlife encourages people to join Ashley Judd in her efforts to end the current war on wolves by filling out an action alert at defenders.org.
