Even members of the animal kingdom can use a caffeine pick me up from time to time.

A flamingo that escaped the Granby Zoo in Granby, Quebec was later apprehended in the parking lot of the local Tim’s.

“To reassure everyone, there wasn’t a sale on shrimp at the IGA or a special on coffee at Tim Hortons,” said director of animal care, Karl Fournier. “For reasons unknown, the flamingo escaped and flew away from its group. Our team quickly mobilized and it was captured in a calm manner.”

The zoo says the flamingo went on the lam Wednesday morning and was spotted by customers at Timmy Ho’s.

According to zoo officials, the flamingo is back with the rest of the flock and is doing well.
