Jon Stewart helps rescue two goats found roaming on Brooklyn subway tracks

The duo appeared to have come to by the time Stewart showed up to take them to their new home - photos show the animals looking bright-eyed and bushy-tailed as they were shepherded into his truck.

New Yorkers were briefly transfixed Monday morning by the fate of two bearded commuters - a pair of bewildered goats - who found their way onto the tracks of the N line in Brooklyn.

The pair were apparently captured with the help of U.S. comedian Jon Stewart and his wife Tracey, who transported them to a nearby animal shelter.

They also opened a sanctuary at their own New Jersey farm in 2015.


The New York City subway's social media account saw the amusing side and tweeted that goats were "Two very baaaaad boys", alongside a picture.

The line is under construction and service was already cut to those tracks, so the power was off, said MTA spokesman Shams Tarek. Fortunately, they were captured and moved to safety by the MTA. And while they initially didn't disrupt M.T.A. service, their progress eventually forced southbound N trains to be diverted to the D line.

New York City Transit posted pictures of the pair on social media. After the goats were tranquilized, Stewart and his wife Tracey drove them part of the way to the Farm Sanctuary in Watkins Glen, New York.
