White tiger kills a man – level 1

01-10-2014 15:00

This happens at a zoo in India. It is about a student. He is 19 years old.

The student is at the enclosure of a white tiger. He jumps over the fence. He is now in the same area as the tiger. It watches him for 15 minutes. People shout at the tiger. They want to make it go away from him. It does not help.

The tiger takes the student by the neck. It kills him.

Difficult words: enclosure (closed area for an animal to protect it and keep it one area), fence (something like a wall), take (grab).

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