Rights of Cats – level 2

04-12-2019 07:00

In the UK, outdoor cats can kill tens of millions of birds every year.

A recent study in Oxford Journal says that if people let cats wander outside, it can be dangerous for biodiversity. According to lawyers, if people let cats stay outside, they can break the law.

The European Commission reacted strongly to this study, and it said that the right of free movement is important not only for people but for cats, too. The Commission said that it does not want cats to be inside or on leashes.

Difficult words: biodiversity (the number and types of plants and animals that exist in an area), right of free movement (the right of a person to move freely, to travel from a place to another place), leash (a piece of rope that people use to control an animal, usually a dog).

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