Giraffe hits a bridge - level 2

Giraffe hits a bridge - level 2

11-08-2014 07:00

A driver moved two giraffes in South Africa. He drove underneath a bridge on a motorway. One of the giraffes hit the bridge with its head. It suffered serious injuries to its head.

The vehicle then stopped working, but people repaired it a few hours later. The driver took both animals to a vet, but one died on arrival. The other giraffe was not injured.

People investigate the incident. However, we already know that the transport was inadequate and incorrect.

Difficult words: suffer (have), injury (hurt), arrival (when something comes somewhere), inadequate (not good).

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

What makes you sadder? A hurt animal or a hurt person?
