I have come very, very close to drowning a couple of times; it wasn't pleasant but was certainly not the worst way to die I have run across. If I was convicted of a capital crime and sentenced to death, drowning would be in my top 3 if I got to choose my own means of disposal. I wouldn't recommend a cruel means of animal disposal when a less cruel means is available......unless we are talking bears, drowning bears would be fine but it should be a slow process and the water should be at a good rolling boil.
