Fireworks spook dogs, cause accidents

Every year when this happens our dog also shakes and hides from this noise and this year it was not just our dog.

I was reading your article on how this lady’s goats were affected by the fireworks and that people should think about the animals when you set off your fireworks.

Every year when this happens our dog also shakes and hides from this noise and this year it was not just our dog.

We had company from out of town and one of their dogs was also shaking and trying to hide from the noise.

Then the next day I go to work and find two of the guys that I work with had very serious problems from the fireworks; one tried to help a dog on the highway, (scared from the noise). He pulled off the highway to help this dog and it got hit by a truck and died. The second guy had his dog jump over his fence out into the Cedar area and also got ran over by a car.
