Angry elephant in India – level 1

13-09-2023 15:00

In India, there is a festival. There are four elephants at the festival. They are tied up, but one elephant breaks free. It is aggressive. It attacks vehicles which are near it. It attacks twenty-seven vehicles.

Two people ride on the elephant. They cannot control the animal, but everybody is fine. Things like this happen often in India. Elephants are often at festivals.

Difficult words: tied up (a tied up animal cannot move freely), aggressive (bad, doing bad things), vehicle (a thing for transportation).

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