Chinese lanterns were not particularly popular in this country (UK) but this year they seem to be being sold everywhere which is probably what has prompted the RSPCA to begin this petition. I must admit that I had not thought of the potential risk they pose to wildlife but walking my dog last week I came across one caught up in a tree, I hate litter and that is what these things become one the light in them goes out and they come back to the ground. Happy to sign, always happy to support the RSPCA.

I heard about these a few years ago and didn't know what they are. For the last 2 or 3 years, someone in my area has been lighting them on the 4th of July. Those are the only ones I've seen, and they were too high for me to actually see any detail. I didn't know they were causing problems like this.
