Goat and tiger become friends - level 2
People put a goat into the enclosure of a Siberian tiger at a Russian zoo. They intended the goat to be the tiger’s lunch, but it became the tiger’s friend instead!
Because of its bravery, the zookeepers named the goat Timur which means “iron”. Timur follows the tiger around and even sleeps in its house.
The zookeepers said that the tiger is quite lazy – so lazy that it didn’t hunt the goat. Let's just hope that the tiger doesn't get hungry!
Difficult words: enclosure (an area surrounded by a wall), intended (planned), bravery (being brave – not afraid).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
