Two Warman RCMP officers were called to at Tim Hortons in Martensville for an unusual disturbance early Sunday morning — a goat refusing to leave the store.
RCMP described the incident with a tongue-in-cheek release.
"There was a stubborn goat refusing to leave the establishment," RCMP said. "The employees would ask him to leave and walk him outside, but he would just turn around and come back in through the automatic doors."
RCMP believe the goat was simply cold and decided to sleep in the space.
Store employees said the goat ambled through the parking lot, and took a nap in the drive-through at one point. Store owner Camille Barzeele said employees kept an eye on him.
"One of them stayed with him to make sure he didn't get run over, and the other one called the cops and the RCMP," Barzeele said.

RCMP said the goat was "arrested" and taken into the police vehicle.
"He was very unhappy with this so the members decided to take him home instead of to holding cells at the detachment," police said.
Police said they knocked on every farm house north of Martensville, but they were unable to locate his house. So they contacted Animal Control, and eventually transported the goat to an animal hospital until his owners could be located.
"We are happy to report that the goat is safe and sound back with his owners after his adventurous night out on the town," RCMP said. "Employees at the Tim Hortons in Martensville see all sorts of customers overnight. This one wasn't kidding around."
Officials at Tim Hortons head office called it a first for the doughnut chain.
