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.
I used to watch this show when I was a kid and sick and I remember very specifically one episode where they had some kind of wild cat as a gag prize. It may have been a leopard or a bobcat but the only reason I remember this is thinking it would be SO COOL to win that. So yeah they at least on one occasion on Lets Make a Deal had an actual wild animal as a gag prize (It was on a leash attached to some post on a fake set)
