Fireworks Affect Wildlife!

The noise from fireworks causes a great amount of fear, stress and anxiety in wild animals. This fear often causes them to flee into roadways which results in an increase in dead animals.

Nesting birds and other small mammal parents abandon their nests leaving their defenseless babies behind. The panic can sometimes cause so much disorientation that wildlife parents cannot locate their nests and their babies die.

Panic and disorientation from fireworks noise has also resulted in birds flying into windows and buildings, or flying too far out to sea, as they try to escape the noise.

Waterfowl become entangled in remnants of large fireworks and scavenging animals (both birds and mammals) ingest debris, usually resulting in death.

The City of South Daytona, prohibits the use of fireworks throughout the city. Please obey the law and do your part to protect the environment.

Someone needs to ENFORCE the law !

My neighbor lights them and throws them in my yard and at my house

And here we go!! Yet Another year with Mortars being launched within ear shot of the Police Dept.. And since 1970 I've not seen ONE cop car patrol through a Palm Grove neighborhood.

Why I HATE Fireworks! Not to mention pets that are not inside, escape and run in fear. More pets are lost on July 4th than any other day.

I will be calling you like I do every year. My dog has to be heavily sedated. And these idiots, my neighbors, all ready started last week. My dog is going to have a heart attack. 😑😑😑

Brian Ave, heard them LATE on a Sunday night! Normally I don't mind a few here and there on a holiday or weekends... But people have JOBS and need to sleep at night! So yes, more patrol at night to enforce would be great!

We have a cop that lives in Bristol Bay so hopefully they have patrol take the time to do a few drive in's threw the parking lot to keep it under control.

Back in the 90s it was same thing no flying fireworks we still did them. To many people in to many areas not enough patrol or time.

Well just a friendly reminder only the fireworks that leave the ground fly or explode are technically not approved for use. Everything else is okay

Every Time I see someone post some πŸ’© like this Imma buy more and more!!!! Merica!!! Awe poor this and that or get offered πŸ–•πŸΏπŸ–•πŸΏπŸ–•πŸΏπŸ–•πŸΏ. Imma light it up now Just because of your soft ass

Officers need to patrol the streets to make it stop.

They have much more important things to do then worry about this. If it bothers you that much go to bed

Well patrol the streets like northern

They have ones that MAKE NO NOISE

I have inconsiderate idiot neighbors too. I may be calling this year too.
