About a tiger and a goat - level 2

About a tiger and a goat - level 2

05-02-2016 07:00

This news is about Timur, the goat, and Amur, the Siberian tiger. Amur lives in a zoo and the goat was supposed to be his food, but the two animals became friends.

The goat, however, became a little cheeky. First, it took the tiger’s bedding area. One day, when they were playing, Timur headbutted Amur, who hit the goat back. Zookeepers had to take the goat away to see a doctor.

But do not worry, the goat is alive and is still friends with the tiger. Amur only showed him who’s the boss.

Difficult words: be supposed to (if something is supposed to happen, people think that it will happen), cheeky (disrespectful), headbutt (to hit somebody with your head).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

What do you think about this friendship?
