Live nativity scene in Wausau

WAUSAU (WAOW) - One church in Wausau recreated the Christmas nativity scene, with a little bit of help from some animals.

The scene at Saint Paul’s United Church of Christ had Mary, Joseph, the wise men and baby Jesus. They even had a donkey and a baby calf. Organizers say people who have stopped by are enjoying the Christmas scene.

"There have been lots of people that have stopped and taken pictures with their kids especially the donkey that's been a hit with the little kids," said Philip Schneider, the church reverend.

The animals all belong to local farmers. The church also gave out free candy canes for anyone who stopped by.
