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.

Two runaway goats wandering the tracks of the New York City subway created unexpected delays for commuters on Monday morning.

Legendary comedian Jon Stewart found himself in the news today for helping a pair of goats who themselves made headlines under extraordinary circumstances.

Two goats were spotted roaming subway tracks along the N line in Brooklyn Monday afternoon.


Stewart, the former host of The Daily Show, is a long-standing animal welfare activist. He and his wife are supporters of the Farm Sanctuary shelter in upstate NY where the rogue goats were taken in, and have previously adopted an abused horse and a bull that escaped from a slaughterhouse. He and his wife, Tracey, are supporters of the Farm Sanctuary and even opened their own location on their farm in New Jersey.

"We're told they were munching grass", said Jon Weinstein, a spokesman for the MTA. They are safe and not affecting the service at the moment.

Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) officers with the aid of the New York City Police Department ensured the safety of the animals by removing the goats from the tracks.
