BARABOO -- An elephant from Baraboo's Circus World Museum briefly got loose in a residential neighborhood Friday morning, according to TODAY'S TMJ4's sister station WISC-TV in Madison.

It happened just before 7:00 a.m. on Baraboo's southeast side. 

The Sauk County Dispatch Center says the elephant wandered around the neighborhood for a few minutes before law enforcement got in touch with its trainer.

The trainer quickly caught up to the elephant and took him back to the museum.

There have been no reports of any damage.
