August 28, 1995: Stoney, a 22-year old Asian elephant, was injured while performing hind leg stands at the Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas, N.V., in September 1994. He was unable to walk so he was put into a dumpster and wheeled out to
a maintenance shed behind the hotel. He did not receive immediate veterinary care and was kept upright inside a mechanical cattle crush in a dark room. In August 1995 hotel staff and the trainer attempted to move Stoney. During
the attempt to release him from the mechanical device that was keeping him upright , he fell injuring his other back leg. He was euthanized later that day.
