About

THE CIRCUS ELEPHANT WHO MADE HISTORY

This is the gripping and emotionally charged story of Tyke, a circus elephant who went on a rampage in Honolulu in 1994, killed her trainer in front of thousands of spectators and died in a hail of gunfire.

Tyke’s break for freedom – filmed from start to tragic finish – traumatised a city and ignited a global battle over the use of animals in the entertainment industry.

Through her former trainers and handlers, circus industry insiders, witnesses to her rampage, and animal rights activists for whom Tyke became a global rallying cry, the film raises fundamental questions about our connection to other species.
