People help two dolphins - level 2
Two dolphins were probably chasing fish and swam up a river to a lake in Western Australia. People wanted to help the dolphins get back to the sea.
They herded the dolphins. One man even threw himself on the animal to try to catch it. In the end, they placed the dolphins on sheets and transported them into deeper waters. One of the dolphins weighed over 300 kilograms – 10 people lifted it up.
The male dolphins were healthy but tired after swimming in the lake waters. Some people noticed the rescue operation and cheered when the dolphins returned safely to water.
Difficult words: chase (to try to catch), herd (to make move), sheet (a large piece of fabric).
