Rejected petition Control the sale of fireworks or at least ban the loud volume of them.

Only make fireworks available to the public for a short length of time over bonfire week & new years. The amount of wildlife that dies of shock & the pets that suffer badly is cruel & it’s time to stop the cruelty. If you can’t stop them at least ban the use of the loud ones that sound like bombs.

More details

The affect it has on animals is cruel, fireworks are so loud now the vibration going through the ground is like a bomb going off. When you have them going off in all directions it’s impossible to get away from it especially living on a housing estate. It’s also bad for the environment? If it was just November for bonfire week & Christmas & new year, then it would be barely, it’s going on for months.
