Gorilla saves her little sister - level 3
A gorilla in Israel Safari zoo came to the rescue of her younger sister yesterday after she fell into a five-metre moat. A passing visitor filmed the three-year-old gorilla named Amelia falling into the ditch.
Her eight-year-old sister Ania then carried her on her back, attempting to climb up the moat wall but was scared off by a power cable and fell down.
The zoo spokesman said the pair then successfully climbed up the other side of the moat onto the visitor’s area which was evacuated by the zoo staff.
After Amelia recovered, all gorillas who are kept at the night house were released back into their open yard.
Difficult words: moat (a deep, wide space with water in it in the ground for protection), ditch (moat), attempt (to try).
