Jon Stewart rescues runaway goats

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.

Not to be dramatic or anything, but goats continue to conspire against humanity - this time against the people of NY.

Seemingly making light of the situation, NYC Transit posted another tweet calling the goats, "Two very baaaaad boys".

They also opened a sanctuary at their own New Jersey farm in 2015.

In the end, none other than Jon Stewart swooped in to transport the strays to a shelter in upstate NY run by the Farm Sanctuary animal rescue organization.

According to the New York City MTA, the goats, subsequently named Willy and Billy, were found walking between the Fort Hamilton Parkway stop and the 8th Avenue stop, presumably because it takes pretty much the same amount of time. They are safe and not affecting the service at the moment.

It's unclear how the goats got onto the tracks and the NYPD and Animal Control are still trying to wrangle the animals.

The pair were of the Boer breed, which is commonly raised for its meat, Meredith Turner-Smith of the Farm Sanctuary shelter said.
