Heartbreaking

Watching the documentary, all I could think was, "I want to hug an elephant now." The news coverage of Tyke's death was so full of contradictories. There were never any reports of the authorities trying to tranquilize her. Twice, Tyke broke free from the circus, she should've been transported to a sanctuary. She could've been roaming free, had it not been for the greed of the circus.

I saw news coverage of Tyke's death when I was a child and never forgot it. Seeing it again all these years later, I am still as disturbed as I was the first time. You can see the sadness in her eyes as she laid dying.

Changed my mind

This documentary show us why we shouldn't use wild animals for circus!! I saw the documentary with tears in my eyes.

Great idea, bad execution

The documentary's point is very simples and what you'd expect: the way animals are treated in circuses is bad and they should not be used in circuses, they should be left in the wild, where they're happy. Good idea. But the way the directors tried to makes us feel empathy with Tyrone, Tyke's trainer is absolutely disgusting. They're censuring animal abuse while trying to force compassion with the exact man who abused them. If the target audience is the unthinking overly-sensitive who fall in love by someone as long as some cheap emotional music is cued in, no matter what words come out of their mouths, they did a great job.
