Big bird in the streets - level 2

Big bird in the streets - level 2

04-06-2013 06:00

Busy traffic can be quite unpleasant and it gets worse when a big animal runs in between the cars.

It is not known where this ostrich escaped from but people from a Chinese city will probably never forget its crazy run. The ostrich ran into a car and later straight into a taxi driver.

The ostrich was almost as fast as the police cars. It was difficult to catch. But in the end, the police caught the big bird. It is fine, with only its wing a little bit broken.

Interesting words: unpleasant (not nice), ostrich (big bird which cannot fly but runs fast).

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