This happens in Melbourne, Australia. A kangaroo is hit by a car. The kangaroo is hurt. It has problems on its face. The animal is shocked. This is not a normal situation for it.

The kangaroo looks for a safe place. It finds a place like this. It hops into a pharmacy.

People don't want kangaroos in shops. The kangaroo cannot stay. It must go. People call others for help. A group of men comes. These men make the kangaroo sleep. The men take the kangaroo to a doctor.

Difficult words: hurt (have problems with the body), hop (jump), pharmacy (special shop with things which help you when you are not feeling good).

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