Squirrel Attack – level 2

20-09-2021 15:00

A squirrel broke into a home in New York and started eating cookies. The residents could not handle the little criminal, so they called the police.

When they entered the kitchen, the squirrel jumped at one of the officers to attack him. His body camera captured the moment. The footage looks quite dramatic, but the attack only made the officers laugh.

The little animal then ran out a window.

Difficult words: resident (a person who lives somewhere), little criminal (this refers to the squirrel), footage (a video).

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