The world has seen many unlikely friendships, not just between man and animals, but also amongst different species of animals. And one more story that only serves to make the fact that friendships can transcend all barriers even stronger, is the story of these brothers - Baloo the bear, Leo the lion and Shere Khan the tiger.
Check out their unbelievably heartwarming story.
Noah's Ark Animal Shelter in Georgia has been home to three unlikely brothers - Baloo the bear, Leo the lion and Shere Khan, the tiger.
These animals were rescued in 2001 from the basement of a house in Atlanta during a police drug raid. Today, the trio goes by the acronym BLT.
This is a photo of Leo, back in 2001 when he was rescued. He was found with an infected wound on the nose because of being confined to a small crate.
The animals were in terrible conditions when they were found.
Baloo had to undergo a surgery so as to regain his health. All of them were malnourished when they were found. Eventually, they found their way back to good health.
These three are always together, just like brothers.
The three animals were too injured to be sent back to the wild, and so NAAS determined to keep them in the sanctuary.
Just look at their smiles! Don't these guys make for a great band of brothers?
