The BLT are the only bear, lion and tiger in the world that live in the same enclosure. In 2001, Baloo an American Black Bear, Leo an African Lion, and Shere Khan 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

The Georgia Department of Natural Resources brought the cubs to Noah’s Ark, a non-profit animal sanctuary in Locust Grove, Georgia. When the cubs arrived to Noah’s Ark each had their own set of afflictions. Shere Khan the tiger was underweight and malnourished and Leo the lion had an open, infected wound on his nose from cruel confinement to a small crate
