“Two very baaaaad boys.” Goats are seen roaming subway tracks in Brooklyn on Aug. 20 2018

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. We'll keep you posted, ' wrote NYC Transit.

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.

The MTA noted that subway service was not affected by the wandering goats, so I guess we should all hope more wandering goats appear during rush hour commutes.

The New York Times reported that veteran comedian and former late-night host Jon Stewart helped with the rescue of the two goats, who were sedated and sent to Farm Sanctuary, a facility run by the comedian's wife Tracey in upstate New York.

The goats were spotted roaming between the Fort Hamilton Parkway and 8th Avenue stops on the N line in Brooklyn just before 11 a.m.

The saga came to an end around 1 p.m. when the two "baaaaaad boys" were tranquilized and captured. In a video, Stewart is shown helping load the goats into a trailer to Farm Sanctuary.
