A Flying Cow – level 3

02-08-2021 15:00

There is an expression ‘if pigs could fly’, but in this story, the cow was flying!

Near Verona, Italy, a cow fell into a ravine and could not get out due to injury, so a helicopter came to airlift it back to a group of cows. The cow looked like it was flying as the helicopter flew it over the ground. Hopefully, it will recover quickly and be back on the ‘moo-ve’ soon.

Difficult words: if pigs could fly (the idea that something impossible will not happen), ravine (a deep river), moo-ve (a pun – a joke on the word ‘moo’ and ‘move’).
