CEO Brings Yak to Office. Yes, Yak.

To foster a fun and creative work environment, more and more companies are having "take your pet to work" day. But Jim Harding, CEO of a Seattle start-up tech company Cirqe went a step further: he took his yak to work!

Weighing in at over 1,000 pounds, Harding's long-haired bovine just hung around the office on Tuesday. The conference room was unavailable.

"As you can see, he's pretty calm, he's cool, he's collected," Harding said.

But what about the cleanup? Nothing a shovel couldn't solve. "Yeah, he does tend to do that, about eight times a day," Harding said.

Employees said Harding tries to foster a fun and creative work environment. "It's an unusual office, but it's really fun," said software engineer Raul Raja. "You can't say much when the boss brings in a yak."

Ha, very cool =) If I had to be a corporate drone, I'd far rather do so at a company where people brought strange animals into the office - I used to have a hard enough time just finding a place that was willing to have a once-a-year "Bring Your Dog to Work" day ...
