Baby orangutan is saved – level 1

30-01-2015 07:00

This news is about an orangutan. He is one year old. He is just a baby. People keep him in a chicken cage.

They do not give the orangutan enough food. He is very weak, and he cannot move.

British vets find the orangutan. He is sick and afraid. The vets save him. They give him good food. The orangutan is getting better now.

Difficult words: cage (a box for an animal), weak (without energy, not strong), vet (an animal doctor).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Why are some people so cruel to animals?
