Guy Fawkes madness upon us

Early November is usually associated with Guy Fawkes, that festival of loud firecrackers, trailblazing hand-rockets, sparklers and other fireworks.

But since the run-up to 5 November, Guy Fawkes Day, the air has already crackled with sparkly noise, and residents have already been hard at work trying to soothe their pets, who become petrified and confused by the noise and fireworks. Each year dogs, especially, are injured and even killed during Guy Fawkes.

The municipality appeals to the public again to use fireworks with caution, and only in designated areas and at specified times. Venues allocated include the Mbekweni Sports Field, Orleans Sports Field, Parys Cricket Ground and the open field behind Saron Fire Station.

Consult your local vet for a sedative to calm your animals. Illicit use of fireworks can be reported to municipal law enforcement on 021 872 2323, and for injured or frightened animals, phone Paarl SPCA on 021 863 2720 or Wellington SPCA on 021 864 3726.
