Inspiring words but my heart is broken by this image. Wow.
After 20 years torture in a circus, where elephants are abused with the tips of large hooks, of the sort every day fish hooks which cut their skin in the most sensitive parts.
Tyke was insane and killed the man who taught degrading circus tricks to him, to make money, and managed to escape in downtown Honolulu, desperately searching for his lost freedom and tranquill…his habitat, a life without pain and fear.
Contrary to what you might expect, he was surrounded by the police and local citizens fired 86 balls in the tired body.
Nevertheless it took 2 hours for him to to die, 2 hours, whitout any help or veterinary anaesthesia was authorized.
It is often said that animals have no voice, but the eyes on the last picture of Tyke shout at us. To be pursued, in his eyes full of fear, sadness, disbelief, for its self defense, we see this spirit cannot be broken, the hope, the 20 years of torture and death endures, the unstoppable power of a character in search of its liberation from torture.
There is no creature on the world without a right to life and freedom. No law justifies torture against innocent people, and we wonder what motivates a man to inflict pain to an innocent creature, which looks at you still with big eyes full of horror!”
don’t support the circus
this is the absolute fucking worst
I know seeing this stuff on your dash isn’t the most pleasant thing, but sometimes we need to be shook
p.s. To all of you who reblog these sorts of things with “I hate humanity,”
Hate is not productive. This story is not meant to inspire hate. It’s meant to inspire change. Take responsibility for your actions, be mindful of how what you do and what you spend your money on affects the lives of others.
If we are loving, respectful and compassionate towards all creatures, shit like this will stop happening
This is fucking heartbreaking.
