White tiger kills a man – level 2

01-10-2014 15:00

A student jumped into a white tiger’s enclosure at a zoo in India. The animal cornered him and watched him for around 15 minutes. It hit him with its paw a few times.

People shouted at the tiger, as they wanted to make it go away. It, however, did not help. The animal pulled the man by the neck and moved him to the other side of the enclosure.

The father of the 19 year-old said that this is the zoo’s fault because it could not stop his son from jumping in there. The zoo said that the student jumped inside the enclosure after people warned him.

Difficult words: enclosure (closed area for an animal to protect it and keep it one area), corner (to prevent someone from being able to get away), paw (animal’s foot).

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