A bear, a lion and a tiger have been living together in an enclosed sanctuary for the past 15 years.

Affectionately known as 'The BLT', Baloo the bear, Leo the lion and Shere Khan the tiger by police during a drugs raid in Atlanta, Georgia in 2001. The trio were just a few months old at the time. They were discovered underweight and malnourished, cowering in cages under the house. 

They have lived in an enclosure at Noah's Ark Sanctuary ever since. 

A spokesperson from the sanctuary said that: "Baloo, Leo and Shere Khan eat, sleep, and play together and even seek out grooming and affection from one another, head rubbing and licking each another."

"Their terrifying early months in life bonded the three together and they are truly inseparable despite their obvious differences." they added.
