Northwest Animal Rights Network
"As a psychologist, with 30 years of experience in emotional trauma, I am very concerned with the effects of loud noise on humans. As a board member of a nationwide animal protection organization I am equally concerned about the effects of fireworks on non-human animals.
I have personally witnessed the terror of dogs and cats after a moderately loud fireworks event. I have seen these dogs and cats flee their homes and dart across highways, be injured and lost. I hope you will ban fireworks at the new stadium. As a baseball fan, I think the excitement can be there without the threat to the health and welfare of the animals."
