Dog Gets Stuck on Cliff – level 2

23-01-2017 07:00

In Utah, USA, a dog became stuck on a snowy 50-foot cliff and triggered a rescue operation from the county. A rescuer tried to bring her to him with food, but every time she was close, she became nervous and went back onto the cliff. The rescue operation had to stop for the night, but the rescuer left the dog with food and hand-warmers.

Somehow, the dog climbed down the mountain by herself. She had cuts on her paws, but she came back to owners in good health after her adventure.

Difficult words: trigger (start), county (a large area in a state in the USA), hand-warmers (devices that you use to keep your hands warm).

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