Monkeys in a city - level 1

A city in India has a problem. Thousands of monkeys come to the city.

They go into people’s homes. They take food and clothing. People must protect their homes. They use iron grills.

People from India worship monkeys. Some people give food to them. This makes the situation worse. Also, there is a forest around the city. The city grows. The forest gets smaller and smaller. The monkeys don’t have enough space. They must move into the city.

Difficult words: iron (type of metal), grill (bars for protection), worship (to show love and respect for a god).

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