A bear gets stuck – level 2

16-06-2021 07:00

A young bear climbed up a power pole in Arizona, US. The animal got stuck in power lines, and it was necessary to turn off the power.

Workers from a utility company arrived at the place, and they tried to get the bear down. They used a special stick so that they did not get hurt. The bear started to bite the stick, but after a while, it started to climb down. Then it quickly ran away. Luckily, the bear did not get hurt.

This is the second time this month when a bear climbed up a power pole in Arizona.

Difficult words: power pole (a tall pole with electric cables or other wires attached to it), power line (a cable which carries electrical power), utility company (a company which supplies electricity, gas, or water to people).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
