A couple of interesting news items happened over the Christmas weekend involving live Nativity scenes.
First, a goat in Minnesota fled the scene from a Nativity at Bethlehem Church in Fergus Falls, Minn. The 3-year-old Angora goat escaped its leash on Christmas Eve afternoon and remained on the lam on Monday.
The goat's owner said he tried to chase the animal for two hours, but a lack of snow made tracking it difficult.
There was some happier news Christmas Eve involving a Nativity display at The Krohn Conservatory in Cincinnati.
There, the conservatory reports, a night watchman oversaw the delivery for a sheep that was part of the live animal display. Officials say the birthing went well and the mother and lamb were doing fine.
Officials said they may name the female lamb "Merry."
