Think of Animals

The fireworks season seems to go on longer than ever, so please spare a thought for the animals and birds that are terrified by the deafening crashes.

Animal Aid believes that - for the sake of all animals - fireworks should be sold only to organisers of public events and not to individuals wishing to set them off in their gardens or in the street.
