Mountain lion in the street - level 2

Mountain lion in the street - level 2

19-04-2013 14:00

A resident from California saw a mountain lion near his house. He called the emergency services because mountain lions are not just big cats, they are wild and dangerous animals.

People who take care of the animals and wildlife in the area came to help in this situation. They put the mountain lion to sleep and moved it back to nature in a big car.

The male animal weighed 56 kilos. Mountain lions are common in California but they rarely attack people.

Interesting words: resident (local person), wild life (animals in the wild), male (opposite to female), common (normal), rarely (not very often).

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