Police Tranquilize Pair Of Goats On The Lamb On Brooklyn Subway Tracks

BROOKLYN, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – Two goats were spotted roaming subway tracks along the N line in Brooklyn Monday afternoon.

No kidding!

New York City Transit posted pictures of the pair on social media.

Initial reports from authorities said the goats were not affecting service and were safe since power was off for station improvements, but an update just before 1pm noted N trains were been rerouted to the D line from 36th Street to Coney Island Stillwell Ave in Brooklyn.

For once, fingers weren't pointed at the MTA when service was disrupted since the two animals on the lamb were to blame

The goats ran back and forth about 300 feet Monday with animal control hot on their hooves. The pair was finally tranquilized by NYPD ESU officers and taken to Farm Sanctuary, a Watkins Glen, New York- based animal shelter.
