A lion, tiger and bear (named Leo, Shere Khan and Baloo respectively) were living a terrible life of abuse at the hands of a drug dealer. They were found as helpless cubs, starving and full of parasites, in an Atlanta home’s basement during a drug bust. They were whisked away from that terrible place and began their rehabilitation at Noah’s Ark, in Locust Grove, Georgia. Each had their own health issues, but together they healed and grew as friends.
Both Leo and Shere Khan had infection issues and were malnourished…But Baloo was in the worst condition of them all. He was kept in a harness from a young age, but it was never loosened as he grew. It required surgery to remove.
During his surgery was the only time the three brothers were ever separated.
Now the trio, affectionately named “BLT,” spend all of their time together.
They grew into three healthy adults.
They even live in the same enclosure, which is rare.
They survived a terrible experience together, creating incredible bonds of love.
