Baby Otter Is Saved – level 2

10-05-2017 07:00

Utility workers found a baby otter alone and saved it. It was struggling to survive in a canal in Arizona. The workers took it to a wildlife centre. It was dehydrated, hungry, and full of fleas.

People gave it cat’s milk and fish, and it got better soon. It will now start a new life in a wildlife park.

Difficult words: utility worker (a person who takes care of the electricity, gas and water), struggle (try to do something very hard), dehydrated (without enough water in the body), flea (a small animal which lives in hair and sucks blood).

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