Ohio nativity display becomes scene of lamb birth

CINCINNATI (AP) — A lamb has been born unto a Cincinnati nativity display.

The Krohn Conservatory says that a night watchman oversaw the birth on Christmas Eve night to one of the sheep that was part of the live-animal display.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that conservatory officials say the birthing went well and the mother and lamb were doing fine. The conservatory’s director says they are thinking of calling the female lamb “Merry,” for “Merry Little Christmas.”

The lamb has yet to be given a formal name.
