Animal Place Sanctuary
"Loud noises such as those created by fireworks can cause sometimes extreme fear in non-human animals. Because of the intermittent nature of fireworks, the animals cannot learn that the noise is otherwise harmless. Because fireworks are likely to cause considerable problems, it is my professional opinion that their use should be banned in the vicinity of non-human animals. Fireworks are not necessary and people can be entertained in some other manner."
