Fireworks cause too much harm to animals and they should not be allowed.

No to fire works. There is no benefit not for animals nor humans.

Amelia Van Zyl (Cape Town, 2017-02-02)


My dog fell down the stairs on New Year's Eve from running away and trying to find a cupboard to hide in from being petrified of the fire works. He has had to have surgery to repair his Crutia legiments and he is old. Please help to ban these people from doing the awful harm they are doing with fireworks? Please help!!!! Please!!!!

Fireworks cause unnecessary stress and harm to animals as well as humans. We do not want to see our beloved pets get hurt or lost because of some ignorant people who never cared for a pet.

Fire works are harmful And cruel to animals.
Please Ban them

Candice Stephen (Kempton park, 2017-02-27)


Due to many animals and even children have been harmed and stressed during the New Years' Eve celectrations as well as Diwali, we need to do more to ban fireworks. A heavy fine should be given if caught in possession or letting off fireworks and a heavier fine or even jail sentence if animals are seriously injured or fatally injured

Flavia Van Straten (Vanderbijlpark, 2017-02-27)


harm on animals due to fireworks

Fireworks need to be banned from south africa for the sake of all animals

I cannot emphasis how much I detest fireworks!! They need to be banned throughout the world!! What a waste of money, and not to mention the trauma, distress and injury it causes our poor animals.

Ronel Tonkin (Cape Town, 2017-03-08)


Too many animals are scared and harmed by fireworks. Unnecessary

Sharon Milne (Cape town, 2017-03-08)


Fireworks, especially the big bangs which are meant to be banned, are being used irresponsibly and selfishly by people who have no concern as to the terrible effect they have on animals and humans alike. I myself find the detonations frightening, so how much more frightening they must be to animals with much more sensitive hearing than humans have! Why should the minority of our population which wants fireworks, make life unbearable for those of us who do NOT like fireworks? BAN fireworks in South Africa.

Norma Ittmann (Howick, 2017-03-08)


Fireworks are harmful to animals and children.

Sheila Lawson (Cape town, 2017-03-09)

Sylvia Hodnett (Boksburg, 2017-03-11)


Too many animals are adversely effected by fireworks. Not just dogs and cats but farm animals too. It's long past time they were abolished completely.

Daphne Ferreir (Delmas, 2017-03-11)


Dogs don't deserve it

Garth Hodnett (Benoni, 2017-03-11)

Bronwyn Marsberg (Johannesburg, 2017-12-16)


Totally against fireworks. My dog had to medicated twice, because they went on till we pm on New year's day in our area. Find them unnecessary. The suffering they cause the elderly, mentally ill, babies and animals, it's totally not worth it. Not to talk about the waste of money.

So many innocent animals are injured or killed during this time. Apart from that it has nothing to do with our country! It happened the UK so keep it in the UK if they want to burn up their money. But it should be banned world wide.
