Fake leopard escapes - Level 1
Police, emergency workers and zoo workers work together. They want to be ready if a natural disaster happens. They want to be ready if an animal escapes. They fake a snow leopard escape.
A zoo worker wears special clothing. He looks like a snow leopard. He runs around the zoo.
Other zoo workers want to catch him. He pushes over one of them. They shoot a fake tranquiliser dart at him. He lies on the ground.
Difficult words: escape (to get free), natural disaster (a bad event from nature such as an earthquake – when the ground shakes, big water, etc.), tranquiliser dart (a thing with a drug inside for making an animal go to sleep).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
