A goat that bunkered down at the Tim Hortons in Martensville, Saskatchewan, has been reunited with its owners.

Warman RCMP were called to the coffee shop Sunday around 4 a.m. The goat had walked into the entranceway of the building through the automatic doors and settled down for a nap.

Police arrived and loaded the animal into their cruiser.

“He was very unhappy with this so the members decided to take him home instead of to holding cells at the detachment,” RCMP said in a tongue-in-cheek news release that referred to them having “arrested” the animal.

Officers proceeded to visit surrounding farms looking for the goat’s owners and ultimately took him to a veterinary hospital where he was held until they were located.

Camille Barzeele, franchisee of the Tim Hortons, said everyone who witnessed the incident is still laughing about it.

“It’s pretty outrageous,” she said.

“It’s a first for the store and I talked to my corporate head office and they said it’s a first for the chain, too.”

Organizers of the University of Saskatchewan Rodeo said the animal escaped from their event, which kicked off in Martensville hours earlier on Saturday.
