ROHNERT PARK, Calif. — Anyone missing a goat?

Police say a goat apparently needed a caffeine fix when it wandered into a Starbucks in Northern California.

Rohnert Park police Sgt. Rick Bates said dispatchers received several calls Sunday morning about a goat at a strip mall on the city’s eastern edge.

He said employees who were opening the Starbucks tried to give the goat a banana, but the animal kept walking into the coffee shop and started chewing on a box.

Bates took the goat into custody and brought it to the animal shelter — but not before snapping photos of it sniffing around the Starbucks and posting them on the police department’s Facebook page.

He said the word got to the goat’s owner and the animal has made it home.
