Ostrich on a highway – level 2

28-12-2023 15:00

In Malaysia, an ostrich ran down a highway. Its owner was driving it to an ostrich farm when it escaped. The man was taking it to the farm, where the ostrich was born because it became too big for him to keep.

A man on the highway filmed a video of the ostrich and said that he visited the ostrich. It is safe and doing well.

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

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

Have you ever encountered an escaped ostrich on a highway? If so, how did you react and what was the outcome of the situation?
