Buffalo in the streets - level 2

Buffalo in the streets - level 2

01-12-2014 07:00

We don’t know how, but a buffalo in China became loose. It ran in the streets. It damaged vehicles and injured 14 people.

One woman was wearing a red coat and had a red bicycle. The animal trampled her a few times.
The buffalo ran through the streets for about 40 minutes before police officers killed it by shooting it 10 times.

Difficult words: loose (free), vehicle (a car, a thing for transportation), trample (to step heavily on something).

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