Usually large celebrations involve dancing, food and drink and oftentimes -fireworks. While we humans enjoy the sounds and sights of these colorful spectacles, animals feel very differently about it.
The explosion which happens when a firework is set off can cause animals to have heart problems, nausea, tremors, debilitating fears and lightheadedness. It can also lead to “acoustic stress” as most animals’ ears are much more sensitive to sounds and noises than humans.
Animals are confused as to where the loud foreign noise is coming from making them start to run frantically away from where they think the source is. Unfortunately, this sometimes results in them being hit by a car or even lost. Other animals may be too close to the explosion and receive burns or eye damage.
