Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My!
Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My! (h/t daily timewaster via Daily Telepgraph):
Rescued eight years ago during a police drugs raid in Atlanta, Georgia, the three friends were only cubs at the time and barely two months old.
They had been kept as status symbol pets by the drug barons.
Delivered to the Noah’s Ark animal rescue centre in Locust Grove, Georgia, the decision was made to keep the youngsters together.
“We could have separated them, but since they came as a kind of family, the zoo decided to keep them together,” said Diane Smith, assistant director of the Noah’s Ark zoo.
“To our knowledge, this is the only place where you’ll find this combination of animals together, they are our BLT, (bear, lion and tiger).
And I thought it was great that cats and dogs were living together.

Awwwwe… Everyone needs a "feel good" story once in a while. And this is probably the only time you are ever going to get to use "Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My" as a blog-post title, legitimately. Thanks, ProfJ!
Thank you so much for reporting on this wonderful story. I live near the Noah's Ark Animal Rehabilitation Center and Childrens home and it is truly an amazing group of people doing Gods work. I am not affiliated with them in any way but I donate to them frequently and each time I receive an beautiful letter of thanks personnaly signed by Jama, the proprietor of the facility. If your ever passing through Atlanta it's a great place to stop and visit as it's close to I75 south of the city. You can find more information on Noah's Ark and all of their great work at their website: http://www.noahs-ark.org.
It is a great story 🙂
BTW real cat (female) and real dog (female but now deceased) did indeed get along together. In this case female dog became like the mother to kitten when introduced to the household :). She even taught them the finer of things in life after a feed 🙂
Somewhere I have some really good pictures of one kitten having a swing at said female dog….:)
