HALT THE USE OF FIREWORKS AT THE CALGARY STAMPEDE

    1. Petition by

      RAAW - Reform Advocates for Animal Welfare

Animals at the Calgary stampede are submitted to additional trauma every day due to elaborate fireworks displays. These animals are already stressed and to allow them to be further traumatized by the fireworks is cruel and unnecessary. We can not allow this to continue.

      Not only is this a needless and wasteful expenditure, it's inhumane to the wildlife that lives there. You also run the risk of fire by continuous use of fireworks
