Bang out of order: RSPCA new report urging government to restrict the use of fireworks

Wednesday, October 23, 2019

We've released a new report highlighting the stress fireworks cause to animals, to coincide with the start of bonfire season.

We would like to see the public sale and use of fireworks further limited to being closer to four specific celebration and festival dates (November 5, December 31, Chinese New Year and Diwali). 

We believe there should also be a noise restriction on the maximum level of decibels fireworks can reach and all public fireworks displays should be licensed and advertised in advance.

Our figures show hundreds of calls from concerned animal lovers each year. Calls showing concern from animals including alpacas and even an African grey parrot - as well as dogs and horses.
