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

Rohnert Park police Sgt. Rick Bates says dispatchers received several calls 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.

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