Passengers on the Brooklyn N subway line were treated to a crazier than usual ride Monday morning when a pair of young goats were spotted frolicking along the subway tracks.
MTA employees working on a section of track between Fort Hamilton and New Utrecht stops in Borough Park encountered the animals at approximately 11:00 a.m., but were unsuccessful in their attempts to corral the beasts. An MTA spokesman said the two goats were running along a section of track that was without power, so they are not in any danger of hurting themselves.
According to an article published in the New York Post, the NYPD and animal control were called to assist the MTA in the search and capture of the animals. MTA officials say they want to secure the goats before the evening rush hour hits.
Less than a week ago, 20 goats on their way to a Brooklyn slaughterhouse escaped from the truck transporting them when the driver pulled over for a quick nap.
Neither the MTA nor employees of the Brooklyn slaughterhouse could positively identify the goats seen today with the group that briefly escaped last week.
MTA officials ask members of the public to notify them if the goats are spotted.
