Goats Fly with Helicopter – level 2

16-11-2021 15:00

People moved around 375 mountain goats from one national park to another by helicopter. Both of the parks are in the State of Washington in the Pacific Northwest.

The goats in the Olympic National Park were trampling sensitive plants and disturbing soil. In 2010, an aggressive goat even killed a hiker.

The goats are native to the Cascades National Park where people moved them.

Difficult words: trample (step on, walk over and crush), disturb soil (mess up, break up the ground), be native to (be originally from).

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