Dog Gets Stuck on Cliff – level 1

23-01-2017 07:00

In Utah, USA, a dog gets stuck on a snowy 50-foot cliff. Her owners call for a rescue operation to help her. A rescuer tries to lure her to him with food. She gets close, but she gets scared. She retreats onto the cliff.

The rescue operation has to stop for the night. The rescuer leaves the dog with food and things to keep her warm.

Somehow, the dog climbs down the mountain. She does this by herself. She has cuts on her feet, but she is OK. She goes back to her owners after her adventure.

Difficult words: operation (a way of doing something), lure (bring a person or animal towards something), retreat (go back).

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