Circus In the City


A tragical incident happened on the beach of Narva, Estonia. A circus elephant named Medi sank in the presence of trainers. The animal was bathing in the pond when suddenly fell and submerged.


Some witnesses made an attempt to take the animal out of the water but failed. They had to call a rescue team and the police. The elephant was subsequestly pulled out with a tractor.


According to one of the witnesses the trunk of the elephant was all over in sand and blood was trickling out of its mouth. It could die because of the sand that got into its trunk or it could have a weak heart.


The rescuers are not sure about the reason of the elephant’s death, the animal could be rather old.



Medi came from Germany to perform in the circus “Tsirkuse Tuur” in early June.

  1. I thought only whales beached themselves.
    Elephants can swim just fine. Amazing, but true.
    Sad, because elephants are one of the more “human like” animals out there.
    They’ll probably find the circus didn’t treat it well in the end. Face it, the circus is out to make money, not spend it on taking good care of elephants.

  2. Circus trainers had tortured the elephant to death :/ I heard that in Tallinn people saw the trainer of that circus beat the elephant with legs.
    Stop circuses with animals!

  3. this animal was murdered by its trainer…He jumped on it danced on it and drowned it while everyone stood around it and watched with their children…Probably for insurance money…Shame on the people of Estonia and shame on Estonia for allowing it to happen!
