Cheetah and a dog - level 1

Cheetah and a dog - level 1

30-06-2014 07:00

Here is news from California. A mother cheetah rejects her baby. People hand-raise this baby cheetah.
The little cheetah is alone. People choose a dog for it. The dog and the cheetah play together. People watch them when they play. The cheetah and the dog don’t know one another well.

The zoo lets visitors see them. The dog and the cheetah are beautiful. You can watch them every day at the San Diego Zoo.

Difficult words: reject (not to want something), hand-raised (people help the cheetah grow up), one another (the dog does not know the cheetah well, and the cheetah does not know the dog well), visitor (someone who comes to see something).

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