Family Saves Bear – level 2

22-11-2022 15:00

A family in Wisconsin, US, went fishing; they were in a boat on Marshmiller Lake when they saw something unusual. It looked like a bear with plastic on its head.

The family moved closer to the animal, and they saw that the animal was a baby black bear. The bear had a plastic tub on its head, and there was water in the tub. The bear tried to stay above water; however, it was difficult.

The man wanted to take the tub off the bear’s head. He was not successful at first; however, after a while, he succeeded. The man removed the tub, and the bear swam away.

In the past, bears lived only in the northern part of the state. Now, the population of bears is growing, and they are becoming more common in the south, too.

Difficult words: tub (a small round container), succeed (to be successful), common (usual).
