Cow in a tree - level 2

Cow in a tree - level 2

11-06-2013 06:00

It is usually a cat which has to be saved from a tree but not this time.

English firefighters were called to a strange case. They had to save a cow whose head got stuck in a hole in a tree. They used ropes and a crane to lift the cow up and get its head out of the hole.

Amazingly, the cow was not injured at all.

Interesting words: stuck (blocked and not moving), crane (large tall machine for lifting heavy things).

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