Wisbech reader says 'fireworks are going off far too often'
I have every sympathy for ‘Concerned reader’ in the Citizen of October 30.
We’re given all sorts of advice to keep our pets safe on November 5 – and we try to follow it.
The trouble is – and ‘Concerned reader’ mentioned it, too – fireworks are going off for often weeks before that date and many days afterwards.
Ironically, around here, there were night-time explosions galore in the days leading up to Bonfire Night – but I didn’t notice any on November 5! And there have been more since.
How are we supposed to keep our pets safe when there doesn’t appear to be a fixed season for fireworks?
As your letter writer said – why can’t there be a specified proper period for fireworks, so that pet owners know where they stand?
I don’t want to spoil the fun for lots and lots of people who like celebrating Bonfire Night – but I do want to spare my pets from being frightened and not being able to do anything about it.
