Policeman is like a dog – level 2

13-12-2023 15:00

A police officer in England caught a man by pretending to be a dog. The policeman was chasing a man and barked at him so realistically that everyone around thought that he had a trained dog with him.

It all started on the streets of southwest England on Thursday. The policeman and his team were involved in a high speed chase. They stopped the car with four young people inside but they tried to run away. When the people were running away, the policeman started to bark like a dog, and one young man stopped.

Since the incident, other people made some jokes about the policeman, but he does not care. His tactic worked and it is all that matters.

Difficult words: chase (run after), be involved in (be part of).

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