Lion, Tiger, Bear Oh My! Unlikely trio live together in harmony at a wild-animal rescue center
Last Updated: 201 days ago
LOCUST GROVE, Georg. -
Baloo the black bear, Leo the lion, and Shere Kahn the Bengal tiger are all full grown predators but they've been cuddling, playing ball and chasing each other around for the last ten years at Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary in Georgia.
They were rescued as cubs from a drug dealer who abused and neglected them.
In fact, Baloo's harness had to be surgically removed from his neck, and Leo had a raw hole on the top of his nose but they’ve all recovered 100 percent.
But, when the trainers tried to separate them years ago, they all acted out and became violent, so they decided to put them all back together and it's been peaceful ever since.
The curator says to separate them now after more than a decade together, would just be cruel.
