Dog is saved in France - level 1

14-08-2015 07:00

A man is walking his dog. He is near Paris. He finds another dog. It is buried. You can see only its head.

The man takes pictures of the dog. He puts them on Facebook. He does this to teach people about animal cruelty. People take the dog to a doctor. The dog’s owner is in trouble. Maybe, he will go to prison or he will pay money.

Many people are angry with him. They want him to be punished.

Difficult words: buried (under the ground), cruelty (when you’re cruel – when you do bad things to somebody), owner (a person who owns – has something), punish (to make somebody do something because they did something bad).

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