Lion is Shot in Kenya – level 2

29-05-2018 15:00

A lion escaped from the Nairobi National Park and injured a local resident. Kenyan rangers feared that it would hurt more people and they open fire on the animal.

This is the third incident of a lion wandering from the park and causing chaos in the county’s capital. People were able to capture the previous lions and return them to protected areas.

Difficult words: escape (to get out), resident (a person who resides – lives somewhere), wander (to walk without a place to go to).

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