Wild Animals in Town – level 1

07-04-2020 07:00

In Wales, people must stay at home. This is because of coronavirus. The streets are empty.

Around 100 wild goats come to a town center. Wild goats are afraid of people. They do not usually come to towns. They come closer to people only when the weather is bad.

Now, there are no people and cars in the streets. The goats come. They eat garden hedges and flowers.

Local people are not happy. They call the police. The police try to get the goats together. The police do it. The goats go away.

However, the next morning, the goats come back. They lay on lawns. They enjoy the sunny weather. People see that the goats are not dangerous. They let the goats stay.

Difficult words: hedge (thick low trees), local (the people or things that come from a specific place), lawn (grass near a house or in a park).

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