A Wisconsin woman woke up to a giant elephant roaming her backyard.

Jamie Lynn spotted the elephant on Friday morning in Baraboo as it wandered around her neighborhood.

Pictures Lynn shared on her Facebook page show the gigantic, 12,000-pound animal walking on the streets and in the gardens.

But its excursion only lasted 40 minutes because police then contacted the elephant's trainer, who took it back to the circus it had escaped from at about 5:40 am.

It's likely the animal had wandered from Circus World in Baraboo, which has large elephants as part of its act in addition to jugglers and aerialists.

The circus didn't immediately respond when celebrityrave.com reached out.

Some social media users were ecstatic the animal had escaped from the circus.

Tiffany Carr said: 'This elephant hasn't got to freely roam for how long, I'm glad she got out for a bit and didn't hurt anyone, they should be in a sanctuary with lots of room.'
