When you need a cup of coffee — like, really need it — you don't always have the time and energy to seek out the hippest new joint and wait in their long-ass line. Sometimes, you have to hit whatever's nearby, right? Maybe that's what Millie the goat was thinking when she skipped any of the Bay Area's artisan offerings and wandered into a simple Starbucks Sunday.
According to a post on the City of Rohnert Park Police & Fire Facebook page, police were called to the Starbucks at the Wolf Den Plaza strip mall at 5:12 a.m. Monday on reports of a goat in the store.
CBS 5 reports that Starbucks staffers tried to give the goat a banana, "but she kept walking into the coffee shop and started chewing on a box." An "on duty sergeant promptly responded, took the goat into custody, and transported [her] to the Rohnert Park Animal Shelter," Rohnert Park Police & Fire wrote on Facebook.
The goat, later identified as "Millie," apparently lives around the corner from the Starbucks and "had simply gotten away from its home," ABC 7 reports.
When her guardians got word of her java junket, they headed to the Rohnert Park Animal Shelter and "sprung" her from the clink, Rohnert Park Police & Fire announced via Facebook.
Her guardians, ABC 7 reports, will be building Mille a new fence to prevent further brew-related breakouts.
