Tyke the Elephant’s Tragic Death

1994- After Tyke the elephant escaped the Circus International and was brutally gunned down in the streets of downtown Honolulu, Animal Rights Hawaiʻi sued all the prinicpals involved. We have pushed for preventative legislation at the city and county level ever since that tragic day. In subsequent years we have vigorously opposed traveling exotic acts such as diving mules, alligator wrestling, and chimpanzee, bear, lion and tiger acts.
