Pigs on the road - level 2

Pigs on the road - level 2

15-08-2013 06:00

There was an accident on a Chinese motorway. A truck, which was carrying piglets, turned over and then the animals escaped.

The motorway had to be closed because of the pigs. The police had to catch them first. It wasn't easy because the pigs were pretty fast. But thankfully for the police, the weather was hot and so were the pigs. They hid under the truck to cool down. Then the police caught them easily.

Difficult words: piglet (young pig), thankfully (good for the police).

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