Help Ban The Importation Of Exotic Animals For Display In Hawaii #DoItForTyke

tyke the elephant
24 years ago, Tyke the elephant escaped a circus in Hawaii and was shot 86 times before dying in the streets of Honolulu. 24 years later and the use of exotic animals for exhibition and shows is STILL legal! Please speak up for Tyke and tell Hawaii's Department Of Agriculture (HDOA) that you support a ban on the importation of exotic animals for exhibition in Hawaii. There has been a growing effort to make this happen and a hearing on Tuesday (we will be at) to discuss it. EK Fernandez Shows, a local carnival, continues to push for the continuation of using wild animals and has been heavily opposing the ban, going as far as donating $4,000 to congresswoman Colleen Hanabusa's campaign as she runs for governor.

Please speak up for Tyke and send an e-mail to:
