Animals of the Week: This Lion, Tiger, and Bear Formed An Epic Friendship

Lions and tigers and bears, oh my! Thirteen years ago, three cubs were rescued from the apartment of an Atlanta drug dealer, who reportedly kept them as a status symbol. Today, this too-cute-for-words trio is fondly referred to as BLT by staff members at the Noah's Ark Animal Sanctuary in Locust Grove, Georgia.

“They actually seek out each other’s affections,” the founder of Noah’s Ark, Jama Hedgecoth, said. “They nuzzle each other. They play together.”


That’ll be one point for animals, zero for humans. We could really learn a few things about acceptance and friendship from these big ‘n furry guys.
