Meet the unlikely bromance trio celebrating their 15th anniversary

The trio of pals, also known as “The BLT”, were brought to the Noah’s Ark Wildlife Sanctuary in Georgia, in 2001 when they were found by police in a basement in Atlanta during a drugs raid.
The three cubs were malnourished and underweight after they were found cowered in small cages underneath the house.
Shere Khan, the tiger, was skin and bones and infected with internal and external parasites when he was rescued.

Leo, the lion, came in with an open, infected wound on his nose from where he had been confined to a small crate.
Baloo, the bear, was in the worst state, with a severely ingrown harness digging into his flesh because it had not been loosened as he grew in size.

Noah’s Ark Sanctuary said: “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.
