Georgia asked to ban explosive fireworks after donkey death

A Georgia farmer says his beloved miniature donkey named Sammy was literally scared to death by this year's Fourth of July fireworks

MILTON, Ga. -- A Georgia farmer says his beloved miniature donkey named Sammy was literally scared to death by this year's Fourth of July fireworks. Now he and an animal rights group want Georgia to ban rockets that go boom.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals wrote to Gov. Brian Kemp, House Speaker David Ralston and others Wednesday asking for a "Sammy's law" limiting fireworks to the non-explosive, non-aerial varieties.
