Goat runs away from Calif. home, goes on morning Starbucks run

ROHNERT PARK, Calif.-- Police say a goat apparently needed a caffeine fix when it wandered into a Starbucks in Northern California.

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

He says 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.

Missing a goat? Imagine our dispatcher's surprise when she received a couple of calls early this morning advising...

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.

"We're sure the Animal Shelter supervisor will be thrilled to find a goat in a dog's crate when she arrives to work," the Facebook post read.

Bates says word traveled to the goat's owner, and the animal has made it home.
