Sheep under the Eiffel Tower – level 1

01-12-2014 15:00

There are wolves in France. The wolves attack sheep. Farmers are unhappy about this. They cannot kill the wolves. It is illegal.

The farmers want to change this law. They protest. The protest is a little unusual. The farmers bring their sheep under the Eiffel Tower. They want the government to know about their problem.

One farmer brings a lamb. It doesn’t have a mother. A wolf killed her.

Difficult words: illegal (you cannot do this or you will get in trouble), government (bosses of the country), lamb (a young sheep).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Control the population of wolves? Yes or no?
