What I did:
I read up a recent news story about an auction that sold a permit to kill an aggressive rhino that could pose a threat to younger rhinos.

What I learned:
Words that I did not understand:
Earmarked - To designate funds or resources to a particular purpose

Summary:
A safari club in Texas auctioned off a permit to kill a rhino that was claimed to be a threat to younger rhinos, they said that they were protecting the species by doing this. Many people of the public were against it and even sent death threats. One felt that it showed how much an American would give to hunt rhinos.

  1. Seems like a pretty interesting article you found. Nice job on summarising.

    You could, however, write about your opinion and how it may affect you.
