Elephant being abused in circus is shot 86 times cruelly after fights for freedom and stamps a trainer to death

They don't care about the feeling of it, but just think of themselves.

Green Monday, a social enterprise promoting the vegetarian culture recursed to an incident happened 24 years ago on the social media that an elephant named Tyke was tormented at the circus. In one show, Tyke got angry and killed a trainer and hurt 13. However, Tyke only experienced its freedom for 30 minutes and then shot 86 times to death.

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.

24 years later, Green Monday published an article on the theme of "the terrified eyes" to recall the story.

Green Monday also pointed out that there would no harm without buying and selling,  and call on people to stop watching animal performances. Riding elephants is also an act of injuring animals.
