Here is news from India. A tiger is hungry. It moves close to a village. It attacks a farmer and his father. This happens in January.

The father is injured. The son is killed. People look for the tiger. They want to catch it, but they cannot. The tiger is in the fields. People cannot find it. People often see tigers, but they see them only for a moment. People are afraid.

One century ago, there were 40,000 tigers in India. Today, there are not many tigers. People caught the tigers because they were afraid.

Difficult words: injured (have problems with the body), century (100 years), ago (before today).
