Lion is Shot in Kenya – level 3

29-05-2018 15:00

Rangers shot a lion dead after it escaped from Nairobi National Park and injured a local resident along the way.

Kenyan rangers opened fire on the animal out of fear that more people would get hurt. Video shows the lion trying to break free and run away while gunshots and screams echo in the air.

This was the third incident of a lion wandering from the park and causing chaos in the capital in the recent weeks. However, the animals who had strayed were able to be captured and returned to protected areas.

Difficult words: wander (walk without a specific destination), chaos (when events seem random; when you cannot predict what will happen), stray (move where people do not want them to go).
