Ostrich on a highway – level 1

28-12-2023 15:00

This news is from Malaysia. A man has an ostrich. He cannot keep it. It gets too big for him. He is taking it to a farm. The man and the ostrich are on a highway. The ostrich escapes. Another man films the ostrich.

In the end, the ostrich gets to the farm. It is safe. It is doing well.

Difficult words: ostrich (a big bird that cannot fly but runs very fast), escape (break free/get out from a place).

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

What happened to the ostrich after it escaped on the highway?
