Ban the sale of fireworks for private use

This petition had 14,520 supporters

This is a petition in memory of Jaffa the horse who broke his leg after being frightened by fireworks on 5 November, 2014, and had to be put to sleep the next day. We are calling for a ban on the private sale of fireworks for the sake of all animals who experience the sheer panic and terror of what is nothing less than a "war zone" every time fireworks are used on mass in the uncontrolled chaos that is Guy Fawkes night in New Zealand. Fireworks should be used in controlled, public situations only, not to be used randomly and without regard for non-human species. The cost of fireworks to human injury and property is already too great, but the cost in animal suffering, including the birds, must be recognised.
