Comedian Jon Stewart helped save a pair of goats roaming subway tracks in New York City on Monday. 

The former host of "The Daily Show" teamed up with Farm Sanctuary to help get the goats off the tracks and to a shelter, according to HuffPost. 

Video posted on Twitter by Spectrum News NY1 shows Stewart corralling the animals into a transport vehicle. 


HuffPost notes that the goats were spotted on Monday morning on subway tracks in Brooklyn. The two were tranquilized by Animal Care and Control before being taken to a shelter by Stewart and Farm Sanctuary employees. 

The New York Transit Authority labeled Stewart the "GOAT," or greatest of all time, on its official Twitter for his help in rescuing the animals. 

The New York Times noted that Stewart and his wife have been supporters of Farm Sanctuary since 2015, when the group opened a shelter on the couple's farm in New Jersey.
