Hawke's Bay Today


- Sorry for your loss Legup Trust. RIP Peaches x like Aussie!!! Ban fireworks

● Naomi Aupapa Chong-Nee: That’s why they banned private sale of fireworks in Aussie way before we came here. We see why. Clowns that purposely harm animals or do silly acts with fireworks. Having displays in controlled areas have solved all those problems.

● Kayla Gair: It’s not just fireworks. I’ve seen horses in paddocks next to the motorway which aint good for horses

● Scott Kenah: It seems a knee jerk

reaction to blame fireworks when there is no conclusive evidence, an old horse it could have been any number of things. Sad for these involved though

● Raelene Hale: They were setting them of again last night, driving me nuts

● Sarah Hansen: So sad — ban fireworks all together. Poor Peaches and other animals

● Ben Evans: So sad, honestly, something needs to be done, too many irresponsi­ble people with buying fireworks

● Shontae Haenga: Most read stories on hawkesbayt­oday.co.nz
