Wild bear relaxes - level 2

Wild bear relaxes - level 2

13-06-2014 15:00

A family in Florida had an unexpected dinner guest. A black bear relaxed in the family’s garden hammock. He looked like a tourist.

After 20 minutes, the neighbours turned on their lights. The bear was scared and ran away. Half an hour later, he came back.

The bear also likes to look for food in bins, so the family took down the hammock, and people removed their bins.

Difficult words: unexpected (surprising), hammock (hung piece of cloth for relaxing).

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

Do you have wild animals in your garden?
