#206I'm siginger because of the devestation and trauma this selfish act causes animals.I have seen my own pets in high distress how they have needed medication to get through the night.I have seen spca posts of animals impaling themselves trying to flee from the noise. This is a selfish display of the lack of humanity people have.just for some pretty lights, it's a disgrace.you wouldn't put your children through it knowingly.then why would you to animals?!

#211Fireworks are dangerous for everyone, causing many animals to run away from home and often results in fatalities. The noise causes many people to be unsettled. The noise is really over the top, many people using fireworks are inconsiderate about the times and places they let off fireworks.
Shireen Roberts (Durban, 2017-01-03)
#212I have 5 dogs and struggle to understand how people could be so heartless to not empathise with how they react to the noise and flashes. Was these children or anyone else, action would have been taken with no hesitation for anyone affected. Apart from the stress and anxiety our animals are put through, this is nothing in comparison to the amount of money spent to literally go up in smoke. Why not spend these on feeding the homeless or educating the youth, leave the displays to professional, non-governmental bodies, in areas away from animals and people, under controlled and informed conditions. Fireworks are pretty and amazing, but nothing is worth the fear in my dogs eyes when the sky flowers bloom with all the fury of a canon shot.
Carl Visser (Garsfontein, 2017-01-03)
#214Because I've seen way too many pictures of animals getting hurt during this festive season.

#234I have animals and grandchildren eho live with me. My 3 x dogs and two cats were severely traumatised by my neighbours throwing "cobra" fire bombs off in front of my driveway. The bangs were so loud, it shook the foundations of my house....literally. it was very frightening as I do not appreciate loud sounds in general.

#264The SA government cannot control the sale of fireworks and far to many animals and young children get hurt or even die of it. The only way to control it is to place a total ban on fireworks in South Africa

Ronel Viljoen (Pretoria, 2017-01-03)
#292Due to many animals been harmed and stressed during the New Year's Eve celebrations as well as Diwali we need to do more to ban fireworks. A heavy fine and community service of no less than 30 days at a local animal shelter should be given if caught in possession or letting off fireworks. The sale of fireworks should also be completely banned.
Heidi Lamberton (Tshwane, 2017-01-03)

#335Noisy fireworks are not a religious requirement for the celebration of Diwali. Guy Fawkes is not a South African tradition. Fireworks at new year are a waste of public money that also cause harm, stress and injury, There is no need for fireworks that also are an unnecessary import that affects the balance of payments.
Raymond Lautenbach (Ekurhuleni, 2017-01-03)

George Wolhuter (Pretoria, 2017-01-03)
#348The effect the noise has on our senior community members, babies and animals is too much, and it's a costly exercise when animals are injured. People caught with and or shooting fireworks should be jailed, not fined as police could focus on other duties if fireworks are banned.
Terence Sinclair (Boksburg , 2017-01-03)
#349consider the animals, who can speak up for them??
