Rhino lost his mother - level 2

Rhino lost his mother - level 2

19-06-2014 15:00

Poaches brutally murdered a female rhino. Her four-month-old rhino baby was found next to her body. He cried and no one could do anything to soothe his pain.

The little rhino was taken to a centre for animals in danger. He suffers from terrible trauma. He cannot sleep. Somebody has to sleep outside his room.

Baby rhinos stop eating milk when they are one year old. A lot of milk is needed for him. The centre asks people for donations.

Difficult words: poacher (somebody who illegally catches and kills animals), soothe (reduce), donation (financial help).

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