Depressed polar bear dies - level 1
This story is about two polar bears. They were born in 1984. People moved them to a South African zoo in 1985. The two bears became friends.
One of them has a heart attack. It dies. People find its body in the pool. The other bear gets depressed. It misses its friend a lot. The death breaks its heart.
The bear gets ill. Its heart does not work well. People put it to sleep. It was the last polar bear in Africa.
Difficult words: heart attack (when a part of the heart dies), depressed (very, very sad), miss (when you miss somebody, you want them to be with you).
