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.

He says word spread to Millie’s owner, and the animal has made it home.

He says Millie didn’t travel far; she lives around the corner from the mall.

Rohnert Park is about 50 miles (80 kilometers) north of San Francisco.
