This Lion, Tiger, And Bear Are Most Unlikely Gang Of Friends You'll Come Across.
They came from a background of abuse and fear. Now they've bonded together and are truly inseparable.
This is Leo the African Lion, Baloo the Black Bear, and
Shere Khan the Bengal Tiger.
The threesome were rescued as babies from the
basement of an Atlanta drug dealer’s home when it
was raided by authorities.
They were starving, traumatized, and had bacterial infections.
Since then, they were brought to Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary…
…Where they’ve lived in the same habitat together for 13 years.
The only time the three were separated was when
Baloo was sent to surgery.
The two cats were distraught and cried for the bear’s
return when he was at the vet’s. Since then, no one
has separated the group.
They had clearly bonded during their earliest memories,
and never wanted to be apart.
Now they live together as if they were brothers of the same species.
They play together, nuzzle one another, and are extremely affectionate.
The threesome are the only lion, tiger, and bear known to
be living together in the entire world.
They’re just exceptional.
Humans could really learn from the bond that these three have.
No one ever told them they couldn’t love one another,
so they did just that.
And now, even all these years later, they continue to do so.
The trio are affectionately referred to as BLT, standing for bear, lion, and tiger. They might just be the most adorable sandwich ever!
