Tyke last days on Earth

10개월 전

By 1994, an elephant named Tyke had been abused in the circus for years. The never-ending confinement was too much for her to bear. This is the story of Tyke’s last day on Earth

Tyke killed a trainer and injured 13 others. She was then shot nearly 100 times and killed.

Twenty years later, Tyke’s story is a powerful reminder about the horrors that animals still face in circuses today. Don’t let Tyke be forgotten

Tyke was captured in 1973 when it was a baby elephant and then sold to the circus in Hawaii, where it was abused day and night. On 20 August 1994, in Neal S. Blaisdell Center of Honolulu, it eventually got angry and stamped the animal trainer, Allen Campbell, to death and caused 13 other people seriously injured.

Tyke then broke through the iron gate and ran over the street for more than 30 minutes. The police fired at least 86 shots. It was then lying on the side of a car with blood all over its body. It once raised the right foot to ask for help. Finally, it died of internal bleeding, and only experienced 30 minutes of freedom in its life. Later, the incident was turned into a documentary Tyke: Elephant Outlaw, which shook the world.
