PETS, FARM ANIMALS, AND WILDLIFE SUFFER with FIREWORKS.

From BC SPCA: Each year our shelters receive scores of stray
animals that have become lost due to firework blasts.
Veterinaries inform us of examples of animals, that require
treatment because of injuries sustained from being frightened by
firework blasts. Some animals are particularly fearful and panic
and run into traffic, or cattle and horses charge through
barbwire fences. Particularly, distressing is that cats become
permanently separated from their guardians because they end up in
our shelters and cannot be returned to their guardians because
they lack identification or worse left wondering on the streets.
Not only this is an animal welfare problem, but unnecessary
strains in the limited resources humane organizations must incur
to assist the animal victims.
Even more serious is that our Provincial Constables have had to
deal with intentional cruelty from individuals that direct blasts
at animals. Further in a recent case a youth inserted a
firecracker in the rectum of a cat.
