This is Tyke. Some of you may remember hearing about her. This was her last circus performance. After years of abuse, she could not tolerate it anymore and she fought back. When the dust settled, her trainer was dead, 13 people had been injured and Tyke herself had been shot nearly 100 times before finally being killed.

That was in 1994, it has been 20 years since. Now, just in time for the anniversary of Tyke’s death, the Moscow International Circus has pledged to stop using animals in all of their upcoming performances. It’s a victory for the animals, and for the animal lovers! But it was a long battle to get here. PETA mobilized more than 67,000 to email the Neil S. Blaisdell Center in Honolulu, Hawaii (the place of Tyke’s death), where the Moscow Circus was scheduled to perform in October. If it had been allowed to go on, it would have been the first time since Tyke’s death that animals had been allowed to perform on the site.

But now, the Moscow Circus has promised no animals will be included in its acts. Its progress, but there are still many circuses out there that use animals in their performances. You can help those animals by refusing to attend or fund the shows and circuses they are forced to perform in. If we can do this, Tyke’s tragic death will not have been in vain.
