Baloo the bear, Leo the Lion and Shere Khan the tiger have the most unusual and unlikely friendship between them. They were rescued 12 years ago, via police drugs raid in Atlanta, Georgia when they were a few months old only. They had been kept as “pets” and status symbols by drug dealers.
Diane Smith, Assistant Director of the Noah’s Ark animal rescue centre in Locust Grove, reported that they decided to keep the 3 youngsters together.
Surprisingly for three apex predators with the power to kill with a single bite or swipe of their paw, they are very relaxed around each other.
