What could a bear, a lion and a tiger have in common? Almost nothing, but seeing how a bear, lion and tiger have been friends for over 15 years, who are we to ask questions? We’ve seen how the very unusual friendship between a wolf and a bear can work out, but we’ve never seen three animals from different parts of the world getting along so well, living in perfect harmony.

Bear, Lion and Tiger, otherwise known as BLT have been living together at Noah’s Ark Animal Shelter in Georgia for the past 15 years. Baloo the bear is an American black bear, Leo the lion is an African lion and Shere Khan is a Bengal tiger.

In 2001, the three of them were rescued from a basement in Atlanta during a police drug raid. This was the beginning of a beautiful friendship!

The animals were kept in miserable conditions and Baloo even had to undergo surgery to remove and ingrowing harness that hadn’t been adjusted after he starting growing. It is the only time period when the trio was apart, and since then they have been spending all their days together.
