This peition has garnerd over 296 signatures (as of 10:30 EST) from well meaning animal advocates who did not read the petition carefully. There are many groups promoting slaughter and other issues that are directly against what we stand for. They are sneaky with the wording and the lengthy verbiage that burried the fact that they want to repeal all animal cruelty laws in TX. It rambles on about the fact that the government using animal rescue groups are "stealing" their livestock, etc. This is NOT true. If animals are rescued there is a damn good reason for it.

Bottom line is we must take the time to read what we are asked to endorse. If you have signed this peition you CAN have your signature removed by emailing Care2 and requesting this.

Even the best of us can get duped. At first glance this petition does seem legit...The way that it was worded it seemed as if the animals were being illegally taken away for nefarious reasons.

Well spotted Judy. (I'm so glad I didn't sign it)
It really is suspect though on reading it, as there is NO mention at all in the petition regarding its intention to prevent or seek justice for any act of cruelty!... yet there is a lot of 'Anti' non-profit stuff in there!, which rings alarm bells with me straight away, as does the constant talk of Taxes, money, property etc.

Thx Judy.. surprisingly there is one Mehmet Genc.. one of your recent noters who notes such news & then goes ahead & signs those...
I know this coz he did so even for one of my news where I explicitly asked NOT to sign.
May be due to poor english. I don't know

Bless you for posting it, I just had the same idea (and was directed to here) as all PM messages circulated and all requests for removal of signatures posted in the F&S help group ( obviously had little success so far. Sadly there've been many more signers since.
Only I wish you had included a pic of that petition with this post- more alarming all those who already signed so they can have their signature removed.

Was an unfortunate signer...teaches me to read All the way through petitions before signing. Sent email to C2 because my copy/paste skill is off - ended up on a foreign language document site this last time. Was notified that my name has been removed but may take a few days to actually not show up any more. Everyone who signed please take the time to get your name removed...don't forget to have the date you signed and your number. Thanks all who let me know about this - it would have slipped by without me realizing.

Judy, TY, but unfortunately I already signed. Damn those Texans in Government, they have no respect for animals or people.

Emailed to have my name removed from this stinking nasty petition. How did it ever get passed anyone, I guess you have a lot of petitions and who would ever expect someone to be that sneaky and mean.

I emailed right away and had a confirmation of removal only hours later and it's gone, too. (To ask Eric via F&S or via Kit's list seems to be less successful and takes more time).
before that I had also contacted the authors via the link and asked to remove my signature-won't hold my breath,though.

I now have even resorted to messaging individual friends whose signature I spot on there-even newly added-and refering them to this post for info and removal. It's painful to see how many more keep signing. :-//

just spotted your signature on this BAD PETITION, PLEASE read this post and ask to have your name removed from it.

Suheyla-did you SEND that as an EMAIL to the email address listed above? I'm confused at what you comment here-including my personal message to you..

I sent out the last warning and did the research on this POS petition. You can send me your name and number from the petition and I will submit it for you. It may take a day to actually be removed. If you are member of the group - "Feedback and Suggestions" you can post your request with name and number on that group site.

Thanks Judy for submitting this important up date on THAT petition. I was foolish enough to sign, but my signature is now gone. I fear all signers my find themselves inundated by SPAM mail from this dubious group that wishes to end all animal welfare rights in Texas. I can tell you that so far the only truth in that petition is the line asking for a signature to end all animal rights in Texas. I'm very disappointed that Care2 allows this petition to continue to gather signatures from the unsuspecting

When I tried to make a news post of this I had originally given the link for F&S group thread on this topic as the URL-but that is NOT ACCEPTED-it led to my own newspage. So, sadly the link for this lousy petition had to be used for the post which again led some to sign, who are too lazy to read. They did not even have to read the thread or comments, the headline alone should have avoided to sign it. Too sad.... ://

On another note: A petition like this is especially challenging for international citizens who don't understand fully US law, or the english language is challenging. It's better not to sign in these cases.

Kit B (276)

I think it's important to acknowledge that it was Constance that first brought this to my attention. I am very grateful that she was paying and caught what I did not. This petition is still gathering names. I can only assume that people are reading the introduction and think they are supporting animal rights, nothing could be farther from the truth.

Angelika R (143)
Thursday November 7, 2013, 11:31 am
Too bad that even a new post with a PICTURE and a WARNING written on it would not stop those from signing who just browse the animal petitions but not the newspage..
My thanks to Constance as well!!

Thank you Judy....Thankfully I didn't sign, but sometimes when news like this is done and it goes to the petition sadly some people think this petition will take care of the BAD ONE! Like Constance was talking about it...I saw some news names on this that I AM SURE THEY WERE CONFUSED SINCE this takes to to a petition link. YIPES....Sadly, you can't leave a COMMENT of ANGER on any petition unless you sign the POS! What about someone doing a different petition to NIX this one with the HELPFUL WORDING TO REMOVE SIGNATURES....That petition should get signatures and thus helping to STOP PETITIONS from getting on Care2 that have no business being here. BTW There is one petition under WOLVES that is APPALLING....I have no IDEA HOW IT GOT HERE!

Sorry for the typos, I am truly concerned that people are seeing this and with sign thinking that it will help. It is a hard thing to put a petition out and someone rushing will hit that green button and sadly sign. There are a quite a few petitions here that need to be shut down.

Judith E (402)

Thanks for all your comments and for taking action to withdraw your signatures. Thanks to Constance for catching this and to Kit for researching how to get signatures removed, for putting the info in her share book and posting it in the news. Well done! Because this petition is horse and livestock related, I am extremely thankful we got this turned around.

We must be vigilant in reading petitions before signing them. I was sent a list of petitions against horse cruelty/slaughter that I had not seen (or posted) before. One in particular was pro slaughter but worded in a way that you had to look closely to see that. I didnt sign because I read it carefullyand because of that I didnt post it here with all the other petitions for horses I submitted through the news over the weekend. If I had not paid close attention, we would have all signed itit was that deceiving. There are unscrupulous people out there who want to dupe us into promoting their own agenda when all we want to do is help. Shame on them! Bottom line is we have to read carefully before signing our names to anything!

That said, I want to thank you for all you do to help the horses. God bless!
