The Unusual Brotherhood Among a Bear, a Lion, and a Tiger

An unusual trio of friends brought up in difficult circumstances find comfort in each other’s presence at Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary in Georgia. Yes folks, we’re talking about a bear, a lion, and a tiger more commonly known as The BLT. The sanctuary is a non-profit safe haven for abused, unwanted, and neglected animals that took the 3 unlikely brothers back in 2001 after they were confiscated from a drug dealer’s home. Perhaps what’s more amazing is how the three wild animals would never have been together otherwise as the bear can only be found in North America, the lion from Africa, and the tiger from Asia. Today, visitors can witness the the inseparable bond the BLT shares as the three can be seen playing, sleeping, eating and even grooming each other at Noah’s Ark.
