Tyke (1974 – August 20, 1994) was an African elephant who performed with Circus International of Honolulu, Hawaii. On August 20, 1994, during a performance at the Neal Blaisdell Center, she killed her trainer and mauled her groomer, causing severe injuries. Tyke then bolted from the arena and ran through the streets of the Kakaako central business district for more than 30 minutes. Police fired 86 shots at the animal, who eventually collapsed from the wounds and died. While the majority of the attack in the arena was recorded on video tape, additional footage captured the attack on a local publicist, which took place outside of the building.
