Lion, tiger and bear raised together after rescue from drug dealer

Confiscated from a drug dealer's home at a very young age, the BLT are the only bear, lion and tiger in the world that live in the same enclosure.

The BLT (bear, lion and tiger) was sent to Noah’s Ark in 2001. Baloo, a North American Black Bear, Leo an African Lion and Shere Hkhan a Bengal Tiger, were discovered in an Atlanta home’s basement by police officers during a drug raid.

At only a few months old, all three cubs were frightened, malnourished and infected with internal and external parasites when they were brought to Noah’s Ark by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.
