Buffalo in the streets – level 1

01-12-2014 07:00

This happens in a Chinese city. A buffalo becomes loose. It runs in the streets. It damages cars. It injures fourteen people.

One woman wears a red coat. She has a red bike, too. The buffalo attacks her a few times.

The animal runs in the streets for 40 minutes. Police shoot the animal 10 times. It dies.

Difficult words: loose (free), damage (break), injure (when someone or something hurts someone and he has problems with his body).

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