Sheep under the Eiffel Tower – level 2

01-12-2014 15:00

Since 1993, wolves attacked around 8,000 sheep in France. The population of wolves has been growing because a law protects them. The number of attacks is growing as well.

French farmers are unhappy about this, and they organise an unusual protest. They unleash their sheep under the Eiffel Tower. They want the government to know about their problem, and they want a permission to control the population of wolves.

One farmer brought a lamb to the Parisian square. He said that it lost its mother that day – a wolf killed her.

Difficult words: unleash (release), permission (if you have a permission to do something, you can do it), 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?
