Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals
"With a constituency of approximately 40,000, we oppose the use of high-grade explosive fireworks in areas where animals may be affected. Explosive fireworks cause animals a high amount of fear and stress. Many animals become terrified by these noises and in an attempt to escape from them, jump fences and run onto busy streets and highways. We would be opposed to the use of such fireworks in regions that are densely populated by people and animals."
