    No, that's just a myth.  I doubt if an elephant can even see a mouse way down there on the ground.

    I've seen an elephant startled and avoiding a chipmunk.

    The theory with mice is that they could enter the elephant's trunk and cause harm, and the elephant has no recourse if that happens.
