Ban Fireworks-South Africa



Animals lives matter more than people's need for a form of entertainment.

Terri Knight (Benoni, 2017-01-04)


I hate what fireworks are doing to pets and wild animals. And the fact that children get hurt due to negligent parents and money hungry shop owners.

Cindy Van der Walt (Pretoria, 2017-01-04)


Fireworks scare the living daylights out of the animals and unfortunately it's not them that have to pick up the pieces, but rescue organisations. So please let's sign and share..... thank you

I'm so sick to see the trauma that they cause animals , we came home on New Year to find a lab type dog in our Kitchen she had forced her way on the kitchen door and found refuge with our dogs , problem is people just don't give a dam about the trauma it causes to all animals not just the domestic ones it's no good just banning the ban has to be policed and the shops need to bear the consequences of selling them , especially in rural areas .

Fireworks are dangerous and cause harm to humans and especially animals. Animals are traumatised by the extremely loud noise. Also the cruel abuse of animals by sickos who use fireworks as a weapon to inflict pain and suffering on poor defenseless animals is unacceptable!

Furthee,I see this as direct animal abuse and torture by all who sell, purchase and use fireworks in our country.
