Three Unlikely Friends, and What the Government Did to Them
At first glance, it may seem like an American black bear, a Bengal tiger, and an African lion might not have anything in common, but these three individuals were victims of neglect and animal cruelty as cubs, finding solace only in each other.
The lion, tiger, and bear had been owned by a drug dealer who did not properly care for them. Negligence left the animals in poor health with multiple injuries. Finally, they were rescued. This is their story.
Leo, Baloo, and Shere Khan (collectively referred to as BLT, which is pretty awesome, but I digress) were bought together as cubs by a presumably wealthy drug dealer. As you would assume, this drug dealer was very neglectful of the poor cubs.
The neglectful treatment of these creatures was discovered and they were taken in by the Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary in Locust Grove, Georgia. Here, they were rehabilitated and cured of their many injuries. However, Baloo required a little more work.
