Bees attack police – level 1

26-10-2022 07:00

A man lives in a house in Massachusetts, US. Authorities say that the man must leave.

The man doesn’t want to do it. Many people support him. Rorie Woods is one of them. She is 55 years old. She is a beekeeper. She keeps bees for their honey.

Last week, Woods drives to the man’s house. The police are there. They ask the man to leave the house.

Woods has beehives on her car. She opens one beehive. The bees get out. They sting several people.

Police arrest the woman. Police say that they never see someone attack people with bees before.

Difficult words: support (to help), beehive (a box in which people keep bees), sting (to hurt someone from an insect).

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