    A goat apparently needed a caffeine fix when it wandered into a Starbucks in Rohnert Park, California, over the weekend.

    Sgt. Rick Bates said dispatchers received several calls Sunday morning about a goat named Millie wandering around a strip mall on the eastern edge of the city, which is about 50 miles north of San Francisco.

    Bates said employees who were opening the Starbucks tried to give Millie a banana, but she 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 her sniffing around the Starbucks and posting them on the police department's Facebook page.

    Word spread to Millie's owner, and the animal has made it home, according to Bates. The animal didn't travel far, Bates said, adding that she lives around the corner from the mall.
