Hungry Polar Bears – level 2

19-02-2019 07:00

A group of polar bears invaded a town in Russia when they were looking for food in rubbish dumps. They also entered homes and public buildings.

The town, on an island north of continental Russia, said that this was an emergency as polar bears can be dangerous.

People say that there is less and less Arctic ice, so the bears are moving south to look for food.

Difficult words: invade (enter in large numbers and make problems), rubbish dump (a place for things which people throw away), emergency (a serious, dangerous situation).

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