Tyke, Elephant Outlaw an emotion-charged documentary

The next community documentary screening at the Old Cobargo Butter Factory will highlight World Elephant Day. On Sunday, August 7 from 3.30pm, “Tyke, Elephant Outlaw” will be shown, with movie makers Stefan Moore and Susan Lambert present for a Q&A after the screening.

This is the gripping and emotionally charged story of Tyke, a circus elephant who went on a rampage in Honolulu in 1994, killed her trainer in front of thousands of spectators and died in a hail of gunfire. 

Her break for freedom – filmed from start to tragic end – traumatised a city and ignited a global battle over the use of animals in the entertainment industry. 

Coffee and tea provided, bring your own mug and a $5 donation to cover costs.
