This is another one of those…seen before, but worth seeing again.

This Lion, Tiger, and Bear are the most unlikely Gang of Friends you’ll ever come cross.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.While at the drug dealer’s home, Baloo had been mistreated so profoundly that the harness that was put on him had grafted into his skin. 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 all brothers of the same species.They play together, nuzzle one another, and are extremely affectionate.The threesome are the only lion, tiger, and bear living together in the entire world.They’re just that 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, all these years later, they continue to do so.The trio are affectionately referred to as BLT . . . Bear, Lion, Tiger.

They might just be the most adorable sandwich ever!
