Two massive elephants, named Bunny and Suzy, had escaped from Garden Bros Circus about 3am local time (5pm AEST) in Newmarket, near Toronto, when an electric fence around their pen was inadvertently disabled.
Police said the elephants took a "stroll" around town and "snacked on several nearby trees" but did not cause any injuries or property damage.
An astonished resident awakened by their stomping and chewing before dawn notified police, who helped steer the animals back to their pen.
"Hi, um, we've found an elephant walking down the street," the unidentified man says in a recording of an emergency call to police, repeating it twice to a seemingly bewildered policeman.
"How big are we talking about?" the officer responds.
"A full grown elephant," he shouts. "It's following one of my friends."
