Police Help Ducks – level 3

30-12-2022 15:00

A Russian police car helped a family of ducks cross a busy street in Moscow.

Passersby also assisted in stopping the traffic and guiding the couple and their 12 ducklings to safety. All drivers waited patiently for the ducks to waddle across the street. The ducks made it to the other side of the road and then to their destination, a nearby park.

Wildlife such as ducks and swans live in ponds and lakes, and they usually rely on feeding by the public. Currently, they are being left to go hungry because of the coronavirus lockdown, and some of them are at risk of starvation.

Difficult words: passerby (a person who is walking past something, waddle (to walk with short steps and move the body from side to side), starvation (when someone has no food for a long time).
