Man threw a dog - level 2

20-06-2013 06:00

An Argentine footballer was given a red card for his bad behaviour. He tried to throw a dog which was on a football pitch over a fence.

The dog didn't get over the fence but it hit it instead. It ran away and it seemed to be fine. However, this act made people angry and they started to throw things at the player and call him names.

Local media suggested that the football player's team should fire him for doing such a bad thing.

Interesting words: pitch (football field), call someone names (say bad things about someone).
