LION AND TIGER AND BEAR
OH MY!

These 3 unlikely wild animal companions
are as friendly to one another
as they look.

As the result of a drug bust in Atlanta
some 13 years ago,
these three cubs were rescued in a cage,
barely 2-months old.

The drug dealer had kept them as "pets",
but had kept them together.
He was subsequently arrested, and
the animals carted off to Noah's Ark Rescue Center.

The zoo keepers decided to keep them together,
with no plans to separate their quarters.
They've been unseparable ever since,
oblivious to the fact they aren't
natural companions.

The world's nations could well learn
something about living together
from these 3 wild animals.

  12. Hello Rick!
    WOW, that is post I particularly enjoy!
    I know is was illegal for the guy to keep these animals, but they might not have been unhappy...
    Anyway, they have a large pen, are still together and seem A-OK!!!
