This news is about a woman. She lives in China. She is old. She does not work anymore. She helps dogs.

In China, people eat dogs. This is normal to them. They say that this is a tradition. The woman does not like this. She saves dogs. She has many dogs at her home.

Her dogs eat 200 kilograms of food every day. Because of this, she has no money. She owes 800,000 yuan.

Difficult words: tradition (something which is typical for a country), owe (if you owe somebody money, you have somebody’s money, but you must give the money back).

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

Is it OK or not OK to eat dogs? What do you think?
