Leopard in a well – level 2

28-07-2014 15:00

A leopard strayed into an Indian village because it looked for prey. The leopard fell into a well during the night.

Local men heard noises from the well and discovered the leopard. More people came quickly to help the animal. People wanted to catch the leopard with a rope, but the animal did not make it easy.

In the end, they saved the leopard, and it was not even injured. People pulled it out of the well by a rope around its tail.

Difficult words: stray (wander), prey (animal which is eaten by another animal), discover (find), injure (hurt).

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

Are there many wild animals where you live?
