These Goats Have Been Very “Baaaad Boys”
Two goats were found roaming around on subway tracks in Brooklyn, New York on Monday
Monday morning, two goats were the cause of train delays on the New York City subway in Brooklyn. The goats were running loose along the N train track. There is still speculation about where the goats came from and how they got on the tracks, but The New York Times mentioned that there are slaughterhouses in the area and that other animals have escaped them in the past.
The New York City Transit Subway Twitter account tweeted and said “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.” The tweet then called the goats “two very baaaad boys.”

After the goats were found on the tracks, Jon Stewart (the former host of the Daily Show) and his wife picked up the goats in Brooklyn and brought them to Farm Sanctuary in Watkins Glen, New York. At the sanctuary, the goats will receive medical examinations and will receive personalized care.
Update: Jon Stewart, the 🐐 herder? The former host of the @TheDailyShow, seen on the left, helped get 2 goats to an animal shelter upstate Monday. The goats traveled along the N line tracks in #Brooklyn in the afternoon. It's not clear how they got there.

This goat incident comes just two weeks after dozens of goats had gotten loose and were invading homes in Boise, Idaho. Is this all some strange coincidence?
