Bull in a bank – level 2

29-08-2022 07:00

On Monday, people saw a big bull running through a car park near Tel Aviv, Israel. He had a rope around his neck, so they knew that the animal ran away from somewhere.

The bull managed to get inside a bank. CCTV cameras caught the bull as it ran in the hall, when suddenly, it hit a wall. The animal was confused and kept running. Some people tried to stop the bull, and one man even shouted at the animal to catch its attention.

Officials found the owner, and he and a vet came to be ready to tranquilize the bull. No one knew how the bull escaped and from where. People took more than 30 minutes to catch the animal.

Difficult words: CCTV (a system of screens and cameras inside a building or in a public place), attention (a time to watch, listen, or think about something), tranquilize (to give a person or animal a drug to calm him or makes him fall asleep).

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