Findadeath: Stoney the Elephant - The Gentle Giant

Findadeath friend Kerry Randal- Ospital sends today's Death Hag Sticker




Stoney

June 17, 1973  - August 26, 1995

He is buried at the Craig Road Pet Cemetery in Las Vegas.

Stoney was a performing elephant at the Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas.  

He was injured during a rehearsal and did not get proper care.   He died an agonizing year later.

The story is summarized in this Youtube video.  It's so sad.


According to legend, Stoney has been seen roaming around the cemetery, grazing on the grass.

I hope so.

RIP Stoney
