Jon Stewart helped “two very baaaaad boys” in need in Brooklyn on Monday.

The longtime animal advocate and Farm Sanctuary supporter came to the rescue, when New York City’s MTA discovered two male goats wandering the above-ground tracks. According to the Associated Press, police tranquilized the animals and brought them to an animal shelter.

That was when Stewart and his wife Tracey stepped in to help Farm Sanctuary staffers transport the little guys — now nicknamed Billy and Willy — to the organization’s location in Watkins Glen, New York.

In the video below, Stewart is seen helping to shepherd the goats onto a trailer to get them to the shelter owned by he and his wife. (Stewart and his wife bought the 12-acre Bufflehead Farm in 2013 and transformed it into a home for abused animals.)

“They’re safe now,” reads the caption of the “Goat Rescue!” Facebook video posted by Farm Sanctuary, featuring Stewart. “These goats were found terrified on the subway tracks in Brooklyn this morning. Tonight, they are on their way to our flagship sanctuary in Watkins Glen, NY, thanks to Animal Care Centers of NYC (ACC), our friends Tracey and Jon Stewart, and our talented Farm Sanctuary rescue team. #FarmSanctuaryLife”
