Lion & Tiger & Bear…

You will notice that the only cruel, heartless, species in this segment is a human from Atlanta. I hope that human was left in a cage in the basement wearing Baloo’s tightly adjusted harness.
-Sheila Tolley-

THIS IS LEO THE AFRICAN LION, BALOO THE BLACK BEAR, and SHERE KHAN THE BENGAL TIGER.

THE THREESOME WERE RESCUED AS BABIES FROM THE BASEMENT OF AN ATLANTA DRUG DEALER’S HOME WHEN IT WAS RAIDED BY AUTHORITIES.

THEY WERE STARVING, TRAUMATIZED AND HAD BACTERIAL INFECTIONS.

SINCE THEN, THEY WERE BROUGHT TO NOAH’S ARK ANIMAL SANCTUARY
WHERE THEY’VE LIVED IN THE SAME HABITAT TOGETHER FOR 13 YEARS.

THE ONLY TIME THE THREE WERE SEPARATED WAS WHEN BALOO WAS SENT TO SURGERY.
WHILE AT THE DRUG DEALER’S HOME, BALOO HAD BEEN MISTREATED, SO PROFOUNDLY THAT THE HARNESS THAT WAS PUT ON HIM HAD GROWN INTO HIS SKIN.

THE TWO CATS WERE DISTRAUGHT AND CRIED FOR THE BEAR’S RETURN WHEN HE WAS AT THE VET’S. SINCE THEN, NO ONE HAS SEPARATED THE GROUP.

THEY CLEARLY BONDED DURING THEIR EARLIEST MEMORIES AND NEVER WANTED TO BE APART.

NOW THEY LIVE TOGETHER AS IF THEY WERE BROTHERS OF THE SAME SPECIES.

THEY PLAY TOGETHER, NUZZLE ONE ANOTHER AND ARE EXTREMELY AFFECTIONATE.

THIS THREESOME IS THE ONLY LION, TIGER AND BEAR LIVING TOGETHER IN THE WORLD.

THEY’RE JUST THAT EXCEPTIONAL.

HUMANS COULD REALLY LEARN FROM THE BOND THAT THESE THREE HAVE.

NO ONE EVER TOLD THEM THEY COULDN’T LOVE ONE ANOTHER, SO THEY DID JUST THAT.

AND NOW, EVEN ALL THESE YEARS LATER, THEY CONTINUE TO DO SO.

THE TRIO ARE AFFECTIONATELY REFERRED TO AS BLT, STANDING FOR BEAR, LION, AND TIGER.
