There are no benefits to be derived from Fireworks other than that of entertainment. Fireworks do have many undesirable effects including disruption of community peace and quiet, (a Constitutional right) terrifying of domestic animals (contrary to the Animals Protection Act), carbon emissions and waste of money.

      It saddens as well as frustrates me to see my animals in the state that they are each time the festival of lights is celebrated. I honestly believe that there are alternative ways to celebrate it. No disrespect to those that celebrate this day with fireworks because it's part of their religion, just feel they should consider others and realize what affect it has on our furry friends. It comes as a shock to me that fireworks has not been band as yet. What has this world come to? We as humans are meant to protect them, not scare the living SH*T out of them.

      Animals don't have a voice so we need to be their voice.

      Why should animals suffer for the senseless "joy" derived from fireworks by humans? And it is senseless. Bang bang bang - - utter rubbish.
