Fireworks
Don't shoot off fireworks

To the Editor:
Fireworks in Snohomish City and Snohomish County harm animals.
There are two times in a year when the morning is deadly silent - the 5th of July and New Year’s Day – mornings after the fireworks.
Birds left their nests and young, wild animals left their resting places terrorized by fireworks explosions.
Our wildlife is diminishing due to the environmental stress. Animals fleeing from fireworks often get lost or killed. Dogs are prone to being hit by cars and birds are prone to breaking their necks by flying into buildings.
Listen, observe – be human – and save our fellow species: ban fireworks.
Welcome New Year 2016 in peace and quiet.
