So a lion, a tiger, and a bear all walk into a bar…
An unlikely family made up of a bear, a lion and a tiger have become the best of friends at an animal sanctuary in Georgia.
According to Noah’s Ark Sanctuary, Baloo the bear, Leo the lion and Shere Khan the tiger aka BLT were all but mere cubs when they were discovered by the police at a basement in an Atlanta house during a drug raid in 2001.
They were then brought to the Noah’s Ark Sanctuary where they have been inseparable ever since.
In 2013, the trio faced eviction and an eventual split when the USDA ordered the sanctuary to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to raise their fences.
I mean, really, who would even want to break this family apart?
