What Jon Stewart did after The Daily Show: Open an animal sanctuary

Jon Stewart left The Daily Show in August, and while his replacement Trevor Noah deserves to be given a chance, it's fair to say we at i100 miss him, and we can't be the only ones.

He announced earlier this year that he was stepping aside as much as for a break as to focus on other projects.

It's emerged that one of those projects is opening up a sanctuary for abandoned farm animals.

He and his wife Tracey Stewart, a former vet worker, bought 12 acres of farmland in Middletown, New Jersey, two years ago, and now plan to open Bufflehead Farm as a sanctuary with educational aspirations.

Speaking at a gala for the Farm Sanctuary charity on Saturday in New York, Jon Stewart said:

I'm a little uncomfortable. I've spent the last 20 years immersed in the world of Washington politics and the media landscape, so I don't know how to deal necessarily with people who have empathy.

Still got it.
