Ostrich on a highway – level 3

Ostrich on a highway – level 3

24-06-2016 07:00

A sprinting ostrich has taken the Internet by storm as it ran down the federal highway in Malaysia.  The female bird can be seen in the right lane of the highway, leading the traffic behind her.

Local news outlets claim the ostrich named Chickaboo escaped from her owner Darren Chow when he was driving her to the Ostrich Wonderland's farm in Semenyih. Chow, an animal trainer, had decided to take Chickaboo back to the farm where she'd originally been born because she got too big for him to keep.

Jeff Sandhu, the man who filmed the video, said he had visited the ostrich in her new home, and she was safe and doing well.

Difficult words: sprint (run quickly), take something by storm (have great success), claim (say).
