Lion Tug of War – level 1
This news is about a zoo. For a price, you can play tug of war with tigers and lions.
One of the zookeepers talks about this. He says that some zoos do it. He says that the game is an exercise for the animals. He says that people can learn about the animals from this.
Some people criticise the zoo for this. They say that it is not normal for animals to play this game. They say that the zoo is doing it just to be special.
Difficult words: tug of war (a game when two groups of people pull the opposite ends of rope), zookeepers (a person who takes care of animals in a zoo), exercise (moving the body so that it gets/stays fit).
You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
