Goat breaks free, goes on Star­bucks run

Lesotho Times - - Cartoons & Puzzles -

ROHNERT PARK — 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. “She’s a re­ally happy and sweet goat. She’s also pretty cu­ri­ous.”
