Snow leopard is injured – level 2

23-05-2014 15:00

Wild snow leopards rarely appear at human residential areas. However, one snow leopard got into a coal mine in China. It was looking for food.

Chinese guards discovered the animal. It struggled in the water inside of a drainage tank. People pulled the leopard out of the water. They used a fishing net.

Difficult words: residential (where people live), struggle (to have problems with something), drainage tank (large container for water).

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

Have you ever helped an injured animal?
