Koala on a Drilling Rig – level 3

26-10-2017 07:00

In Adelaide, Australia, a koala climbed up on top of a drilling rig at a construction site and took refuge from a nearby busy road. He appeared to like the new abode, but rescuers were ready to remove this new tenant.

The rescuers took the koala’s picture and then took him to the vet for a check-up.

Difficult words: take refuge (find a safe and peaceful place), abode (a home), tenant (someone who temporarily lives somewhere).
