It is not so rare to hear stories about unusual and unpredictable friendships between animals of the most diverse species. However, the level we want to talk about today surpasses all limits.
For 15 years, a Bengal tiger, an American brown bear, and an African lion have coexisted peacefully and in total harmony at the Noah’s Ark Animal Shelter, in Georgia (USA).
Their names are Baloo, Shere Khan, and Leo, and it is not difficult to imagine the origin of their names. Volunteers rescued these three animals in 2001 from the basement of a house in Atlanta, Georgia. They are different from each other.
Yes, you have understood correctly!
An unconscionable person had decided to keep these three wild animal cubs in their basement! The three young cubs previously lived in terrible conditions. And, police intervention, during a drug raid, was providential for their salvation.
Baloo, the sympathetic bear cub, had to undergo surgery following the rescue due to a harness. He had never been removed and had become embedded in his flesh. That was the only moment that for a short time the three animals were ever separated. Known as the BLTs, 15 years later, the three are now inseparable and still live at Noah’s Ark Animal Shelter.
Unfortunately, the injuries sustained during detention in that basement did not allow them to re-enter their natural environment. However, judging by their behavior and the photos, the BLTs, nevertheless, seem to be very happy to live together in this beautiful animal shelter.
