Sometimes you just need a cup of joe.

Police in Rohnert Park, about an hour north of San Francisco, said they were surprised to get the call of an apparently coffee-seeking goat early Sunday morning. A sergeant "took the goat into custody," and then dropped it off at the animal shelter, police said.


The female goat was reunited at the shelter with her owners — who will be building a new fence, Bay City News Service reported.

Before stopping at the Starbucks, the goat apparently tried to get its caffeine fix at a 7-11.

Laeni Gross, a student at nearby Sonoma State University, ran into the goat while making a snack run with friends. The goat was pretty chill about it.

"Everyone was super excited to see this goat," Gross told BuzzFeed. "It was awesome having been followed by a goat at 4 a.m."
