Dog Gets Stuck on Cliff – level 3

23-01-2017 07:00

An adventurous dog named Mary became stuck on a cliff and triggered a rescue operation. She stranded herself on a 50-foot cliff in snowy Utah, USA.

A rescuer from the county sheriff’s office tried to lure her to him with food, but she became nervous and retreated every time she got close to getting off the cliff. After extensive effort, the county suspended the rescue overnight, and the rescuer left Mary with food and hand-warmers to deal with the severity of the cold.

Mary somehow managed to get down the mountain on her own. Despite cuts on her paws, she came back to her owners in good health and with an exciting adventure under her belt.

Difficult words: trigger (start), county sheriff (the part of an area in charge of helping people and protecting them), lure (attract a person or an animal towards something), retreat (move backwards), extensive (considerable), suspend (stop something temporarily), hand-warmers (devices that you use to keep your hands warm), severity (how extreme something is).
