Animals often amaze us, showing great loyalty and sensitivity - two qualities that, unfortunately, are lacking in many individuals belonging to the human race.

It is not so rare to come across stories about unusual friendships between animals of the most diverse species, but the story we want to talk about today really surpasses all limits.

For 15 years, a Bengal tiger, an American brown bear, and an African lion have coexisted peacefully and in total harmony at the Noah’s Ark Animal Shelter, in Georgia (USA).

They are called Baloo, Shere Khan, and Leo, and it is not difficult to imagine the origin of their names.

These three animals that are so different from each other were rescued in 2001 from the basement of a house in Atlanta, Georgia.

Yes, you have understood correctly! An unconscionable person had decided to keep these three wild animal cubs in their basement! The three young cubs had been kept in terrible conditions and police intervention, during a drug raid, was providential for their salvation.

Baloo, the sympathetic bear cub, had to undergo surgery following the rescue due to a harness that had never been removed and had become embedded in his flesh. That was the only moment that for a short time the three animals were ever separated.

Known as the BLTs, 15 years later, the three are now inseparable and still live at Noah's Ark Animal Shelter.

Unfortunately, the injuries sustained during their detention in that basement did not allow them to re-enter their natural environment.

However, judging by their behavior and the photos, the BLTs, nevertheless, seem to be very happy to live together in this beautiful animal shelter.

A story of an incredible friendship, which surpasses every imaginable limit.

Editor’s Note: It has come to our attention that, sadly the lion, Shere Khan has passed away. According to the information on Noah's Ark Facebook page, he passed away on 11 August 2016. We join Shere Khan's friends and admirers when they say, "He was truly one of a kind and will never be forgotten!"
