Mountain Lion in LA – level 1

04-04-2018 15:00

A mountain lion roams into the city of Los Angeles. It moves from backyard to backyard.

Police tell people to stay inside. At one moment, the lion paws at someone’s door.

People shoot the cat with a tranquilliser gun. They load it onto a pick-up truck and drive it away from the city.

Difficult words: roam (move), paw verb (touch with a paw – an animal’s foot), tranquilliser gun (a gun which shoots a drug that makes the animal sleep).

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