Incredible Scenes As Goat Upstages Baby Jesus During School Nativity

They say never work with children or animals, so this school should have known better than to combine the two for their nativity.

At Preston Hollow Presbyterian Church in Dallas, a live goat that they’d manage to get for their nativity scene made the bold decision that it deserved the limelight instead of baby Jesus.


The feisty beast, bored at being on the side-lines, jumped up into the manger and judging by the laughter from the audience, managed to steal the show.

Thankfully the baby Jesus wasn’t a real baby and we’re sure that the school will be reconsidering using live animals again!
