Black Bears Scare Tourists – level 2

21-06-2022 15:00

Yellowstone National Park is a national park in the USA. Its symbol is the black bear.

A black bear and her cubs chased a group of tourists on a bridge in the park. People filmed the moment and it showed the scared tourists, as well as those who just kept taking photographs.

Bear mothers are highly protective of their cubs, and they will attack if they feel threatened.

People weren’t always as careful around the park’s bears as they are now. From 1910 to the 1960s, people were allowed to feed the bears along the roads.

Difficult words: cub (a young bear), threatened (in danger).
