#466In our area, at least 5 dogs and 2 cays went missing over new year's "celebrations". We have 2 jack russels who are also terrified of fireworks; thankfully we are at home when fireworks are expected. No dog, cat or any other animal should be subjected to such terror and panic!

#4701. Animals that get maimed and killed because of them being scared or abused (tying crackers to their tails)

#482I love animals & the stress, injury & deaths are too awful. I have posted many lost dogs on groups after fireworks. I have seen animals who have impaled themselves trying to flee & have serious injuries or died. There are those who harm & maime animals using fireworks!! THEY MUST BE BANNED AND A DATA BASE OF OFFENDERS TO ENSURE STRICTER CONTROL OF OFFFENDERS.
Stella Bedeaux (Johannesburg, 2017-01-04)

marlize engelbrecht (middelburg, 2017-01-04)
#484I spent New Years Eve looking for distressed animals an the look of utter terror in their eyes was heart breaking. We need to remember that their hearing is so much more sensitive than a human's. We need to speak for those that can't speak for thrmselves

#515my dogs suffered on new years because of fireworks
antoinette uys (strubensvalley, roodepoort, 2017-01-04)
#516I am very much against fireworks. It upsets animals, causes them to fear and so many dogs go missing every year and get hurt and die. It also hurts wild animals as birds become afraid and fly away from their nests amd their young. It is wrong and should be banned. It hurts the animal too much
Zurien Van der Merwe (Pretoria, 2017-01-04)
#522Had enough of seing animals hurt !!!!!!
Patricia Gerber (Saldanha, Western Province, 2017-01-04)
#523People do not use common sense when lighting fireworks and there is absolutely no consideration for the elderly, those who are suffering in hospitals or in their homes, small children and babies who are awakened by the horrendous bangs and animals whose hearing is much more sensitive to these explosions
Alice Kenworthy (Durban, 2017-01-04)
#525I see the devastation on pets either injured or dead trying to escape and the hundreds of lost animals at shelters many not collected. There is also a huge impact on our wildlife but we don't see that impact as much as we do pets.
