just swims across to their boats or asks them to v 4 him.

Ming's father is a fisherman, but he never u 5 a line or a net(网). Great black birds

called cormorants(鸬鹚) do the fishing for him. Rings(圈)have been put around the bird's

people. And then people reward(奖励)them with a fine big fish as soon sa their work is f 8 .

you may find that the trainer(驯兽员)always g 3 the animal some sugar o 4 a piece of

fruit as a reward(报酬). The scientists say that many d 5 animals may be trained to do a lot of

simple things if they know they will get a reward f 6 doing that.

enemy comes near. And also it may be possible to train animals to work in families or f 10 .
