PETA President Ingrid Newkirk said, “After months of enduring illegal fireworks, the last thing that Oahu’s vulnerable residents of all species need is to close out 2021 with more terrifying blasts.”
PETA also sent the mayor fliers to place around the city, warning people of the dangers of fireworks to animals.
The smoke from fireworks is also polluting and harmful to anyone breathing it in, whether that be a person or animal.
Oahu residents are not allowed to set off fireworks on holidays after a certain time at night, but those guidelines aren’t always followed.
PETA urges pet owners to keep their pets indoors during fireworks to keep them safe and avoid having them run away.
