Dorothy’s chant "lions, tigers and bears, oh my" can certainly be applied to the trio living at Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary in Locust Grove, Georgia. However, you will be "oh my-ing" with less concern and more heartfelt emotions because this might very well be the cutest animal friendship you will ever see.
The ‘BLT’ is not considered a sandwich at the non-profit animal sanctuary; it is the name of a rare trio comprising of Baloo the American Black Bear, Leo the African Lion, and Shere Khan the Bengal Tiger: they live together and are the best of friends.
In 2001, the then-month-old cubs were found in terrible conditions during a drug raid at an Atlanta home. They were brought to Noah’s Ark to be treated and have lived there together in harmony ever since.
