#6I have dogs and cats of my own. Due to the war that rages every new year and diwali we can never go to out as we have to be at home for my babies. The number of strays and scared animals that roam the streets in the aftermath of these idiotic actions of selfish stupid people breaks my heart.
Karlien Breytenbach (Brakpan, 2017-01-02)

Joshua Knox (Cape Town , 2017-01-03)
#49Fireworks causes too many animals untold stress and harm and there are too many irresponsible people who have access to fireworks. Fireworks should only be used for public, traditional or corporate displays, by professional, licensed fireworks handling teams. And only silent fireworks should be allowed. Fireworks should not be made available to the general public.
Melissa Haggard (Port Elizabeth, 2017-01-03)
#52Because of all animals (and small children) who have acute hearing and are extremely frightened by the loud bangs...also the people that get hurt when letting them off!!

#82I hate what fireworks do to animals. Animals are part of families and a scared or injured animal is as good as a scared or injured human being for their human families.
Barbara Ayres (Boksburg, 2017-01-03)
#86It's animal cruelty and frightens human infants as well. New years Eve 2016 my cat went missing due the fireworks display on our beachfront. Thank goodness she came home after 3 weeks. It's a waste of money as well.

Lara Nortje (Benoni, 2017-01-03)
#107We had to stay at home for New Years as I was too worried about my dogs been affected by the fireworks. And lo and behold the bangs went off at midnight even started before then. My dogs were terrified and it broke my heart. I feel it's so unneccessary for bangs to go off and if it really is required then it should be a display of lights, not noise and it should be done in a controlled and restricted environment away from residential areas!
Janine Kerr (Benoni, 2017-01-03)
#110I'm signing because I cannot bear the physical and mental damage being done to our animals. Surely as a nation we should be held accountable for these animals ... we are custodians not owners and we should ensure their safety and well-being at all times.

#129100's of animals incl birds and wildlife are killed, maimed and traumatised. Dogs and cats get lost, jump through glass doors and windows, get impaled on fencing. If this happenend to humans, they would be banned instantly. Well animals also have feelings, they love unconditionally, they fear, they hurt, they bleed, exactly like humans. And then there are all the fires these stupid things cause. Yet people care more about a cheap thrill, which ultimately is just a stupid bang and a great way of burning money. Ban fireworks!!
Lizette Ord (Cape Town, 2017-01-03)
#130I care about animals.
Ria Hackland (Port Shepstone , 2017-01-03)
#131The officials are unable to police the sale and discharge of fireworks so banning them completely will give the officials more power.

#176Fireworks are not used or controlled safely in this country - they're a relic and a danger to animals and are not worth the pain and death they cause!
Keri Bainborough (Stellenbosch, 2017-01-03)
#179It is cruel and o animals who have no choice or say in the matter
Anton Pieterse (Mokopane , 2017-01-03)
#185Fireworks and crackers are still going off in Midrand. The police say they can't control this and that people don't know they may not fire fireworks (since when is ignorance a excuse to break the law), so is this not a clear indication that the people of South Africa cannot enjoy this freedom as they cannot be responsible and law abiding. If it cannot be controlled then it should be banned. It's not as if it's creating jobs or growing our economy. It is growing the Chinese economy and benifitting some store owner who sells other products in anycase. Fireworks should be banned from being imported and anyone selling it should be fined, this can be controlled. This is unacceptable and disruptive and harmful and a absolute waste of money in a country where majority cry poverty daily.
Angelique Scheepers (Midrand, 2017-01-03)
#189I have had enough of our pets that we care for and they care for us to be abused in this manner.
