Manchester, New Hampshire – A box of animal-shaped vegan chocolates from Divine Treasures is on its way from PETA to Hampton Beach Village Chairman Chuck Reiju, along with a letter thanking him for canceling fireworks for two weeks to keep the beach plover nesting season safe.
PETA’s letter asks Rage to take it one step further and make the ban permanent as the fireworks are in any time can cause panicked birds to flee their nests or fly into buildings, wild animals to run onto roads, and dogs to jump over fences and even break through glass doors to escape the terrifying noise. Military veterans and others who are sensitive to noise can also become very upset about these sounds.
“Explosions and explosions threaten the well-being of everyone, from dental technicians to people with PTSD,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “PETA is calling on local authorities to let the fireworks go out forever and promoting fun, animal-friendly holidays that leave the most vulnerable of us alone.”
PETA, whose motto is in part that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way,” is opposed to arrogance, a worldview focused on human superiority. For more information please visit PETA.org or subscribe to the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram…
This is followed by a letter from PETA to Rage.

Dear Mr. Rage:
I am writing on behalf of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and our 6.5 million members and supporters around the world, including many in New Hampshire, in response to your decision to cancel the Hampton Beach fireworks. during zuki. breeding season. Thank you for protecting vulnerable animals, including humans, by disabling this display. Please make this cancellation permanent to protect all Hampton Beach residents?
Traditional fireworks sound like an all-out war – not only for those suffering from PTSD, but also for dogs, cats and wildlife – and their use has devastating consequences. Frightened dogs scramble or dig their way out of fenced yards, desperate to avoid chaos, leading to an increase in the consumption of stray animals in shelters across the country, further putting a strain on community resources. Many arrive with bloody paws or broken bones, some never reunite with their families, and others doomed to a worse fate.
The fireworks produce clouds of smoke containing particles that are harmful to the respiratory system of humans and other animals. Birds caught in or near fireworks are easily suffocated by the poisonous debris. The California Coastal Commission banned the exhibition in the city of Gualala when seabirds left their nests following the 2006 show, leaving their chicks vulnerable to predators. Most birds have poor vision in the dark, so such disturbances can lead to injury if they accidentally bump into power lines, cars, buildings, trees, or each other. In one case, 5,000 birds died on New Years Eve in Arkansas after fireworks caused them to take off and crash into objects such as houses and cars.
In addition, people were injured during the fireworks, and the displays can exacerbate asthma and other respiratory problems. Veterans and other people with PTSD are also sensitive to the noise of explosives and the smell of gunpowder and can be very concerned about it. An average of 180 people are admitted to emergency departments daily with fireworks-related injuries throughout the month around July 4th.
We hope you consider funding other festive events and miss out on the fireworks this year. Thanks for your time and attention. We look forward to hearing from you.
