From the evening of Lunar New Year's Eve, "folk fireworks" are displayed in many districts in Hong Kong to celebrate the new year.
Entering the Chinese New Year is a happy event, but illegal fireworks and firecrackers are not only illegal and disturbing to the people, because the loud noise of setting off fireworks and firecrackers is more likely to startle, causing stray cats and dogs to react in panic. When they are in a hurry, they may rush out of the road. Hit by a passing vehicle.
A non-governmental organization concerned about stray cats and dogs pointed out that from the afternoon of the 30th (21st) to the afternoon of the 4th (25th), stray cats and dogs were frequently killed by cars. In just 5 days, the group has received more than 40 cats and dogs. Most of the remains of cats and dogs were hit by cars.
The group appealed to the public not to set off fireworks and firecrackers, but to consider the lives of stray cats and dogs to avoid further tragedies.
The stray cat and dog group "Wanderer" appealed to the public on Facebook last night (26th) not to set off fireworks and fight with firecrackers.
The stray cat and dog care group "Wanderers" has been voluntarily helping animals that died in traffic accidents and other accidents to help animals walk the last journey with dignity.
"Lang Lang Sees Off" posted on social platforms last night (26th):
"It is a tragedy caused by human beings, and the New Year should be happy. However, fireworks and firecrackers started to be set off everywhere on the evening of the 30th. Until yesterday afternoon, the wanderers received more than 40 remains of cats and dogs. Most of them were killed by cars. Crashed to death. I feel very sad to see the 10 consecutive hospice-death clips on Facebook of Langlang See-Offer today.
Poor lives have lost the right to exist because of human beings' greed for happiness.
I am very grateful to the number of senders o who helped me send the remains of the homeless people to the hospice company one by one after the Universiade tour and eating in the wild.
I am also very grateful to the Pet House for helping to spare a whole day to help the strays die well.
Today I broke the record and made 10 hospice deaths in one day.
Everyone in the family of hard-working pets is helping.
I beg everyone to see you off, use all your efforts to share the next post. I understand that some people will ignore it, but I just want one more chance to infect one more person and stop setting off fireworks and firecrackers.
In this way, cats, dogs or other animals will die in vain.
Prodigals, I hope you feel the last bit of respect, I hope you feel the love and warmth of the senders, I hope you can go to the Rainbow Bridge to be happy, and you will never be a prodigal again in your next life.
