Goat and tiger become friends – level 1

05-09-2022 15:00

This news is from a Russian zoo. It is about a Siberian tiger and a goat. People give the tiger the goat. The goat is for the tiger’s food.

However, the tiger does not eat the goat. The goat becomes the tiger’s friend. It follows the tiger everywhere. It even sleeps in the tiger’s house!

The goat is brave. People name it Timur. Timur means “iron”.

Why didn’t the tiger eat the goat? It is too lazy to hunt it!

Difficult words: brave (not afraid), lazy (if you are lazy, you do not want to do anything), hunt (to catch and to kill).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

What do you think about this “friendship”?
