Jumping Dog Productions were awarded a $15,000 Voiceless Grant to fund the development and production of a documentary which examines the story of Tyke, an elephant who escaped a circus in Honolulu during a live performance in 1994. Tyke was shot and killed in the streets, sparking a local campaign to ban the use of exotic animals for entertainment in Hawaii. Jumping Dog Productions has used this true story as a vehicle to examine questions about the state of animal rights in America. Watch the trailer for ‘Tyke: Elephant Outlaw’ here.
