Animals in Peru – level 2

11-10-2016 15:00

A group of vendors in Peru were selling animals in catalogues and on public roads. Peruvian authorities entered the group’s house and rescued the animals. There were around 100 of them, including 40 puppies.

The authorities found them in terrible conditions and crowded together. The animals will now receive a veterinary care and be put up for adoption. Authorities are asking people to stop buying animals from these places.

Difficult words: vendor (s seller), authority (a person in a position of power), crowded together (close and in a small space), veterinary (connected with animals).
