Monkeys in a city - level 2

Monkeys in a city - level 2

03-07-2014 07:00

A city in the North of India faces a problem. Thousands of monkeys are invading the city!

They are going into people’s homes. They steal food and clothes. People must use iron grills as protection.

People in India worship monkeys. They believe that they are part of a Hindu god. Some people feed these monkeys, which makes the situation even worse. Also, the forest around the city gets smaller and smaller. The monkeys must move to the city.

Difficult words: invade (come in large numbers and take over something), grill (frame with metal bars), worship (to show respect and love for a god).

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