I have not seen Let's Make a Deal since the Monty Hall days, but a joke prize of an elephant is entirely plausible. Many times they had various animals, such as goats, donkeys, swaybacked old horses, etc. I do not recall actual wild animals, but Indian elephants are often sufficiently domesticated for the purpose. Your 'white elephant mistake' suggestion sounds less plausible to me, if only because there were so many 'white elephant' prizes, than that there was a recollection of an actual elephant being a prize. Now, whether someone actually said they wanted to keep it is another matter.
