Panda holds a keeper’s leg – level 1
Here is news from a centre in China. This centre studies and helps pandas.
A keeper is leaving an enclosure. There are two pandas inside it. The keeper is closing the gate when one panda holds his leg. The panda is small and beautiful. A camera films the moment.
There are around 1,600 pandas in the wild. Around 370 pandas live at zoos and other centres.
Difficult words: keeper (somebody who looks after something such as animals), enclosure (closed area for animals), wild (in the nature, not with people).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
Does the video make you feel good or does it make you feel sorry for the panda?
