A goat that apparently did not want to be part of a nativity scene has headed for greener pastures.

The three-year-old Angora goat was supposed to have a supporting role at Bethlehem Church in Fergus Falls, Minnesota.

Instead it escaped its leash, and remains on the run.

The goat's owner is Jim Aakre of rural Underwood. He said he tried to chase it for about two hours, but the lack of snow made tracking difficult.

The wayward goat has been spotted several times since it escaped, but police have not been able to collar it.

A Fergus Falls Journal report said Mr Aakre and his wife also provided a llama and two puppies for the service.
