Alaskan Baby Otter – level 2

05-10-2017 07:00

In Alaska, an otter probably left her 2-month-old pup. People rescued the baby from a beach and named him after the town where he was found – Kasilof. Kasilof now lives with a wildlife team at a centre for sea animals.

The US Fish and Wildlife Service said that he was not strong enough to go back to the wild. However, he seems to be happy with the staff at the centre, and he likes playing in the water.

Difficult words: pup (a baby animal like an otter or a dog), staff (people who work at a place).

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