31-08-2023 15:00

In Thailand, there is a Buddhist temple. 137 tigers live at the temple. Many tourists visit the temple. They want to see the tigers.

However, there are some problems. People say that people treat the cats badly. Officials must get more information about this. If people are treating the tigers badly, officials will close the temple.

Difficult words: temple (a place where people talk to a god or gods), treat (if you treat somebody bad, you are not nice to him/her), officials (the leaders).

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

What steps have been taken to investigate the treatment of tigers at the Thai Buddhist temple?
