Trip To The Circus!
Once upon a time in the land of Ecuador were two Vicunas with two little offspring. Their names were Piglet, the female Vicuna, and
Pooh Bear, the male Vicuna. They all were a happy family until Mom and Dad got struck by a bullet.
I am Pooh Bear and I look like a llama and my body is covered with a thick mass of reddish-orange hair. I belong to the camel family. I would like to tell you the story of how my sister and I lost our parents.
One afternoon, Mom and Dad went to go get dinner in the woods for the family. Just when I heard a gunshot, I thought that people were hunting foxes. Therefore I thought that Mom and Dad were fine.
A few hours later Mom and Dad were still not home. Piglet, my sister, was getting to be very scared and I was worried. So Piglet and I went searching for them. While we were looking, we saw huge man carrying Mom and Dad on their shoulder. Both parents had big wounds on their chest. The hunters were taking them for their wool, which is useful for knitting clothes. Piglet began to cry. It was starting to get dark. I said we should start to go home. On the way home a rattlesnake, our natural enemy, bit Piglet. She could not walk home. I said to Piglet, "You should try to get on my back. " I carried Piglet all the way home.
In the morning I heard digging outside. Before we knew it we were being carried in our underpants into a big car and put into suits and dresses. They brought us to a big tent that had cages with animals in them and close on. The next day we had to do some tricks. They were to do flip backwards and stand on our head. At night, thousands and thousands people came.
We were going to have to perform in front of the people. Piglet thought it would be fun to do. But if she messed up what would she do?
Then the show started. First there were the seals they had to stand on a bin and balance a ball on their nose. Then it was our turn. Piglet had to dance on my back. It was fin until Piglet tripped on my nose. Piglet fell to the ground. The man that trained us took out a whip and hit Piglet. I cragged at the man and bit him. The man put us back into the cage, and we got punished. There were two big Vicuna coming out of the tent. Piglet started to yell. The two Vicunas looked at us and started to run to us. When they got near they started to lick Piglet and me. Then I knew that they were our ancestors.
