Now here is an animal rescue story that will certainly brighten your day…
On the morning of August 20th, two goats were reportedly seen roaming the sea beach line of the N train in Borough Park, Brooklyn. Goats on the subway?! Yes, that’s right, two lovely brown and white goats were exploring the tracks on their own. A train operator reported them around 10:30 a.m., and by 1 p.m., NYPD and MTA personnel managed to corral them up and remove them to a safer area.
Here are the goats before authorities corralled them.
After being corralled, the goats were temporarily cared for by Animal Care Centers before having famous animal advocates Jon and Tracey Stewart aid in their transport upstate to Farm Sanctuary where they will get to live freely (and safely) for the rest of their lives! Watch Jon assist in the rescue here:
Susie Coston, the National Shelter Director at Farm Sanctuary, said the goats were taken to the Cornell University Hospital for Animals in Ithaca to make sure there are no medical issues that need to be addressed. She stated, “They’ll come to us if either way, if they’re sick or not … They’ll have a fantastic life together.”
What were these hoofed cuties doing on the subway tracks? Coston suspects that, due to the cuts on their ears, they could be two very lucky goats who managed to escape slaughter.
Wow, what an incredible rescue story! Thank you, Jon, Tracey, Farm Sanctuary, Animal Care Centers, and every other individual who helped bring these beautiful goats to safety!
