A goat in search of a warm place to sleep wandered into a Tim Hortons in Martensville, Saskatchewan this past Sunday. After briefly attempting to nap in the drive-through entrance, the goat ambled into the Timmies and curled up by the front door, refusing to leave when employees tried to usher him out.

According to the CBC, RCMP were called and removed the animal from the premise, much to the creature’s consternation. “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 statement.

The police tried to locate the animal’s owners by going farm to farm and knocking on doors. While the goat did have to spend some time in a local animal hospital, the owners were eventually found and the goat was safely returned. The RCMP were more than happy to have helped the animal home, although they had some fun on the way.

“Employees at the Tim Hortons in Martensville see all sorts of customers overnight,” the RCMP said, “this one wasn’t kidding around.”
