Goats found wandering tracks taken to sanctuary
NYC Transit tweeted this photo of two goats on the tracks of the N line in Brooklyn.
NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) - Two goats that made their way onto the subway tracks of the N line in Brooklyn Monday morning were moved to a farm sanctuary with the help of comedian Jon Stewart.
New York City Transit tweeted a photo of the 'very baaaaad boys' at 11:33 a.m.
"A new one for us (we think): Two goats are roaming along the N line tracks in Brooklyn. They’re safe and not currently affecting service, but they are on the run. We’ll keep you posted,' wrote NYC Transit.
The goats, with white fur and brown heads, did end up disrupting service along the N line between the Fort Hamilton Parkway stop and 8th Avenue.
As a result, N trains were temporarily running on the D line in both directions between 36 St (Brooklyn) and Coney Island Stillwell Av.
The goats were captured by police who tranquilized them just before 1 p.m.
It was unclear where the goats came from and how they got onto the track.
A few hours later, Animal Care Centers, an animal welfare group, tweeted that Farm Sanctuary would pick up the goats to take care of them.
Comedian Jon Stewart and his wife assisted in transporting the animals to the shelter in Watkins Glen, New York.
The sanctuary says the goats are males.
