Friends – The Happy Threesome

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.
image002
Since then, they were brought to Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary
image003
… where they’ve lived in the same habitat together for 13 years.
image004
The only time the three were separated was when Baloo was sent to surgery. 
[While at the drug dealer’s home, Baloo had been mistreated so profoundly that the harness that was put on him had grown into his skin.]
image005
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.
image006
They clearly bonded during their earliest memories and never wanted to be apart.
image007
Now they live together as if they were brothers of the same species.
image008
They play together, nuzzle one another and are extremely affectionate.
image009
The threesome are the only lion, tiger and bear living together in the world.
image010
They’re just that exceptional.
image011
Humans could really learn from the bond that these three have.
image014
No one ever told them they couldn’t love one another, so they did just that.
image012
And now, even all these years later, they continue to do so.
image013
The trio are affectionately referred to as BLT, standing for bear, lion, and tiger.

They might just be the most adorable sandwich ever!
