Sauk County officials said the elephant wandered around the neighborhood before law enforcement got in touch with the trainer.
Jaime Lynn posted several photos on Facebook and said in a post, "She just strolled thru (sic) yards and decided to eat the leaves from the neighbors (sic) trees and plants."
WISC reports a Circus World trainer caught up with the elephant and safely escorted it back.
Circus World is a museum owned by the State Historical Society of Wisconsin devoted to circus-related history. The museum features summer performances, tours and demonstrations.
