Tiger Kills – level 3

02-06-2017 15:00

A tiger patrolling a perimeter in a zoo in England killed a zookeeper when it entered an enclosure with her. The zoo described it as a ‘freak incident’ and offered its sympathy to family and friends.

People evacuated visitors to the zoo and called an air ambulance to the emergency. Police assured the public that they are safe and that no animals escaped, and an investigation has begun to establish more detail about the tragic incident.

Difficult words: patrol (keep watch over an area by walking around), perimeter (boundary), enclosure (an area that is surrounded by a barrier), freak (very unusual).
