Lion and Tourists – level 2

01-08-2019 15:00

A safari park in Crimea, Russia released a video showing a lion get in a buggy, cuddle and lick the tourists.

The driver of the buggy was a ‘lion whisperer’ – someone who can communicate and control lions. However, this video comes just weeks after a different lion attacked a woman in the same park.

Difficult words: release (show to people), buggy (a small car with an open top), cuddle (touch closely and kindly).

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