Goats Fly with Helicopter – level 1

16-11-2021 15:00

This news is about goats. They are in the State of Washington, USA. The state is in the Pacific Northwest.

The goats are mountain goats. They are in a national park. However, they are not native to the park. They cause trouble. They step on sensitive plants. In 2010, a goat kills a person.

People want to solve this problem. They move 375 goats from the park. They fly them by a helicopter. They fly the goats to another national park. They are native to this park.

Difficult words: be native to (be originally from), sensitive (easily killed), solve (do something about a problem so that it stops).

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