BUTTE, Mont. » Butte barflies may have thought they had one too many when a goat walked in to one tavern.
A patron called to complain early Sunday that somebody brought the female pygmy goat into an unidentified Butte bar.
The Montana Standard reports an animal control officer picked up the goat outside the bar and took it to a shelter.
Chelsea Bailey Animal Shelter Supervisor Jacki Casagranda says if the owner doesn't come forward today, shelter workers will begin the process to adopt it.
Casangranda says it's the first time an impounded goat has been brought to the shelter.
The shelter workers are calling the goat Shirley, and they say it is sweet and friendly.
