We have already seen many examples of unusual friendship between animals – dogs and elephants, cats and foxes, giraffes and ostriches.
However, nothing can compare with the harmony that exists between a black bear, an African lion and a Bengal tiger living together.
Baloo the bear, Leo the Lion and Sherkhan the Tiger have been living together for 15 years at the Noah’s Ark Animal Shelter in Georgia, USA. In 2001, during a police raid, an unusual trio was found in the basement of the house.
The animals were kept in terrible conditions. Balu had to undergo emergency surgery. And it was the only time in their lives when the animals were separated.
After their rescue, every day spent together became a happy day for the three friends.
The animals suffered greatly due to the conditions in which they lived in the basement.
They couldn’t be sent back into the wild. But looking at the unusual trio, we can say that the bear, lion and tiger are quite happy.
