I am an animal lover and with all the Diwali, Guy Fawkes and New Year's celebration am absolutely SO OVER the noise and what it does to my animals who are safely kept inside but devastated at the amount of dogs STILL missing after the WAR ZONE of New Year's celebrations that took place.

Cynthia Mills (Pinetown, KZN, 2017-01-05)


The fireworks are sold left right en centre, everyone want to shoot them off, causing more problems than anything else. Animal's get the worst of it. I have dogs and even when they are drugged with meds from my vet, they still are terrified of the flash and the noice.. should have been banned years ago.

Walter Greyling (Jhb, 2017-01-05)

With all the media attention highlighting the suffering of all animals (domestic and wild) i think that there is no words needed to explain our want and need to have this barbaric form of "fun" banned.. i say ban outright.. i would be happy if even the licenced displays are stopped.

Tamryn Tofte (Amanzimtoti, 2017-01-05)


Fireworks are totally unnecessary, it is dangerous, cost the country millions in clean up, policing and injuries. The SPCA cannot accommodate more animals due to being scared by fireworks. It is cruel to the animals and selfish to the ones who does not want to hear it.

Werner van Tonder (Cape Town, 2017-01-05)


Because of all animals being so afraid of fireworks that they end up hurt or dead

Bruce Grant (Durban, 2017-01-05)


Animals can't talk. We need to stand up for them

Tarryn Holliday (Amanzimtoti, 2017-01-05)


I'm signing because of all the animals that get injured (either directly by cruel people putting fireworks in the mouths of dogs and cars and then lighting them (I'm told that 130 dogs died in Durban
alone this New year) or from jumping through windows and glass doors in their terror to get away from the loud and frightening noise. Many of them run away as well and get lost causing grief and trauma to the owners and their children. Children have also lost eyes and fingers from fireworks. Besides New Year, Guy Fawkes day and Diwali people are able to buy even powerful fireworks without restriction and set them off at any time - birthdays, matric results etc. This makes it impossible for animal owners to know when this will happen and arrange to sedate their animals. I'm told that because if tgeir suoeriir hearing the sound of firecrackers/ fireworks is like a bomb exploding right next to a human would be. Some ignorant and silly children also throw firecrackers into people's property deliberately to scare dogs or as a prank. We need to speak for those who can't. Animals and children. There is a facebook site set up by Vets that shows some horrific injuries to dogs and cats from fireworks. Some run into fences or even get impaled on Palisade fences trying to run away from the sound. Using fireworks isn't funny it is immature and cruel!!

Belinda Kirk (Johannesburg , 2017-01-05)


Serious action must now be taken

Trix Willemse (Alberton, 2017-01-05)

Chris-Zelda Gouws (Johannesburg , 2017-01-05)


The fireworks must be band because of the loud noise and because of the poor animals.they suffer the's not nice to see that a animal is so scared and tries to go over a fence that could hurt them badly.

Malinda Marais (Vanderbijlpark, 2017-01-05)


Fireworks are too dangerous. Dangerous to humans animals and the enviroment.
Why do there have to be big bombs?
We only have to look at all the poor animals who died trying to escape the noise and chaos and those who got lost . Wild animals.also.suffer. The birds go crazy, horses are spooked and then all the other animals are scared as well
Humans get hurt every year
..especially children. There is no need for fireworks.

Leanne Basdew (Pretoria, 2017-01-05)


Animals also have feeling...just have no lets be their voice..

Debbie FILEN (Durban, 2017-01-05)


I hate what it does to animals. It breaks my heart that people don't realize the damage they cause. And worse, they realize exactly how much damage it causes but they do it anyway. Fireworks should be banned!

Daleen Swarts (Sasolburg, 2017-01-05)

It is not well controlled to ensure the safety of both animals and people. Unfortunately society lacks the necessary self control to manage without strict rules and most importantly repercussions.
