Emu on a highway - level 2
An emu ran away from a farm close to Tel Aviv, Israel. It ran on a highway on the outskirts of the city.
Luckily, shocked drivers managed to slow down when the emu got close to them. All the cars stopped at a red traffic light near a shopping centre.
In the end, people captured the bird and returned it to its owners.
Difficult words: outskirts (the outer part of a city), shocked (surprised), capture (to catch).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
