Emma Lu started this petition to Boris Johnson (Prime Minister)

I am starting this petition to help ban the sale of fireworks to the public to save pets and wildlife from unnecessary stress and suffering, and even death.

So far this season, and it's not even reached the 5th of November yet, at least 8 of my friends have lost rabbits purely down to the stress and shock of people setting off fireworks. 

Is this acceptable? I think not!

Can we let this continue? No we can't!

The decibel of some fireworks bangs is way too much. They sound like bombs going off to us, let alone animals who hear things a lot louder than we do.

We have been told from being young children that Bonfire Night is the 5th of November. Why then are the fireworks starting mid October, and going on after bonfire night is over?

This is not fair on pet owners who have to deal with terrified pets night after night. This is not fair on the wildlife that has no idea what is going on. 

If we could ban public sale of fireworks, and only have organised displays on bonfire night and maybe the closest weekend, pet owners could prepare for this and the torture would be minimal.

A few nights a year would not be so bad. I am not a killjoy. The fact is that the torture on our pets is unnecessarily prolonged. We have lost sight of what celebrating Guy Fawkes even means. It was one night, not weeks. Banning firework access to the public would allow a stress free and more enjoyable event for everyone. Please help get fireworks banned.
