Church Nativity scene features live animals
Joy of animals helps Troy worshipers embrace Christmas

Hundreds of worshipers streamed out of the Zion Church sanctuary following the 11 a.m. service Sunday and surrounded the “live” Nativity scene in the lobby.
A towering one-humped camel, a chocolate-colored alpaca with mop-top hair, a black cow, a pair of goats and a spotted pony were in the background of the Nativity scene...

Wow, so many different animals.
Years ago in a small town in predominately ranching Southwest area, we saw a live nativity featured the usual human roles and a few ranch animals who seemed nervous.
A local explained to us - the donkey was high-strung to begin w and was even more skittish because 4-H Club used him for roping & lasso-ing practice the previous week. LOL. It's a wonder the poor thing did not bolt.
