Kangaroo in a shop - level 2

Kangaroo in a shop - level 2

22-10-2013 14:00

A kangaroo accidentally hopped into an airport pharmacy in Melbourne, Australia.

The kangaroo was probably hit by a car. Its face and claws were injured because it moved on the hard surface of roads. The animal was confused and it was probably looking for a safe, quiet place.

Wildlife officers were called to the animal. They shot the animal with a special drug which made the kangaroo sleep. The kangaroo was then moved to a vet.

Difficult words: claw (animal's big nail), confused (in shock), vet (doctor for animals).

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