Elephant in the electric chair
ever heard that Thomas Edison an elephant has put to death, only to promote DC? Because of this widespread rumor is not true. Although the current war between Tesla and Edison took place very big, but Edison was not involved in the execution of an elephant.
Although Topsy the elephant was executed, there is no solid evidence that Thomas Edison had a connection to these events. Also Topsy was no ordinary elephant, he had injured a circus visitors deadly and so had to be executed by rules.
