Angry elephant in India – level 2

13-09-2023 15:00

At a festival in India, there were four elephants and one of them broke free. It was aggressive and it started to throw parked vehicles around. It attacked twenty-seven vehicles.

Two people were on the back of the animal, but they were not able to calm it. Luckily, the elephant hurt no one.

Elephants are often at festivals in India to attract people, but accidents are quite common.

Difficult words: vehicle (something which is used for transportation), attract (to make come somewhere), common (normal).

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

What safety precautions should be taken to prevent a similar incident from occurring in the future?
