Whalephant Game show contestant wins elephant

Comment: I've heard that a man once won an elephant on The Price is Right. The
elephant was of course meant as a joke prize, but the contestant insisted
on getting the animal. It was then delivered to his house in Texas. (This
later inspired the "Bart Gets An Elephant" episode of The Simpsons.)

The only source for this information I could find is the following page:
http://userdata.acd.net/ottinger/cul...ies/price.html (which Wikipedia links to).

Is there any truth to this anecdote?
