ROHNERT PARK, Calif. (AP) — 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 named Milly wandering around a strip mall on the city’s eastern edge.
Bates says employees who were opening the Starbucks tried to give Milly a banana, but she walked past them and began chewing on a box.
Bates took Milly into custody and brought her to the animal shelter — but not before snapping photos of her sniffing around the Starbucks and posting them on the police department’s Facebook page.

He says word spread to Milly’s owner, and she has made it home.
She didn’t travel far; her owner Alan Ergenbright says the 11-year-old pet goat lives just two doors down.
“When we heard, we thought she was a little crazy,” Ergenbright told the Santa Rosa Press Democrat (http://bit.ly/1S08I9V). “She’s a really happy and sweet goat. She’s also pretty curious.”
Rohnert Park is about 50 miles north of San Francisco.
