Panda holds a keeper’s leg - level 2
The following happened at a research centre in China. A keeper was leaving an enclosure with two pandas inside. Just as he tried to close the gate, one cute little panda took his leg and did not let go. A camera filmed the moment.
There are more than 1,600 wild pandas in the world and another 370 pandas at zoos and other centres. The centre in China tries to protect these endangered species.
Difficult words: research centre (centre which studies and helps things such as animals or people), enclosure (area which is surrounded by a barrier), endangered species (animals which may die out soon).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
Does the video make you feel good or does it make you feel sorry for the panda?
