Execution by elephant

Learned something brutal the other day, thought I'd share it here.

Apparently for centuries in South east Asia (particularly India) Asian elephants were trained in the art of torture and execution. 
Death by elephant was used as a form of capital punishment. 
The animals were trained to torture and crush their victims, often stomping on them or sitting on them to crush them. They could be taught to inflict a slow or quick death on command.
What a way to go, jeez.
