Fireworks Need Banning Except For Professional Organised Displays!
So many animals suffer every year because of fireworks due to the loud noises. Animals suffer with all kinds of anxiety and stress.
The emergency services also have their workload unnecessarily increased due to accidents and fires caused whether they’re genuine accidents or results from stupidity! I appreciate the children enjoy them but would they not have more enjoyment at an organised event with family and friends in a safe environment preferably away from all animals!
