Two runaway goats who got lost on Brooklyn subway tracks Monday morning and led MTA workers and police on a two hour-long pursuit have been rescued—by none other than comedian Jon Stewart. After wandering along a closed portion of the N train line and reportedly meandering perilously close to the third rail, the animals were reportedly tranquilized and picked up by Stewart and his wife, Tracey. It wasn’t immediately clear where the goats came from, but animals are known to have bolted from slaughterhouses in the area in the past. An MTA spokesman said the animals seemed unfazed by the chaos they’d caused. “We’re told they were munching grass,” Jon Weinstein was quoted as saying by The New York Times. Stewart and his wife have reportedly taken the animals under their wing and transported them part of the way to Farm Sanctuary’s shelter in Watkins Glen, New York, where they are due to get “world-class, individualized care,” according to a spokeswoman. Stewart and his wife have supported the animal protection organization since 2015, when they partnered with Farm Sanctuary to open a fourth location on their New Jersey farm. The organization operates shelters in New York and California.
