Tiger needs help - level 2
A tiger at an Israelis safari park had problems with his ear. The doctors decided to give him acupuncture to help him because standard medicine didn’t work for the tiger.
The doctors had a lot of experience in giving acupuncture to cats, dogs, horses and cows but giving acupuncture to tigers was something different. Tigers are wild animals. So people had to anaesthetize this tiger first. Then they took him out of his enclosure. The tiger was very heavy. It took six men to carry him out.
Interesting words: anaesthetize (make somebody sleep by using drugs), enclosure (area with a fence around it).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
