Translation:A red bear just ate a bird in the United States!
Does this have a hidden meaning where the "red bear" signifies the Soviet Union and America has an Eagle as their national bird?
Can someone explain to me why 'The red bear ate a bird just now in the US' is wrong? Thanks.
Edit: Just tried the "correct" translation but with 'US' instead of 'USA' and it was wrong, too.
Duolingo tends to be conservative about sentence order. You HAVE TO formulate it like in the original sentence or else you fail. But that's just the way it is and the only way to change it is to report your formulation as a correct answer so it gets accepted in the future.
