A lion, tiger and bear living together as friends.
Hoax or Fact:
Photographs titled as Interspecies Friendships show a lion, tiger and a bear which are claimed to be living together as friends. Yes, it is a fact.
Although it appears unbelievable, the three different species of animals are indeed living together as friends - at Noah’s Ark, a wild-animal rescue center in Georgia, USA. Baloo, the American black bear, Leo, the lion and Sher Khan, the Bengal tiger seem to have forged a friendship for life. They cuddle, play ball, chase each other around, and eat cookies daily. The video is an abc news report of this interesting and loving animal friendship.
Allison Hedgecoth of Noah’s Ark said that the three different predators live together, they do not see their differences and do not see their color differences. Noah’s Ark is an organization working to take care of children and animals and rehabilitate them together. As reported by abc News, the lion, tiger and bear were rescued as cubs from drug dealers in 2001 who had abused and neglected them. Hedgecoth said that all of them had issues when rescued, and have recovered more than 100 percent.
Interestingly, when trainers at Noah’s Ark tried to separate the three animals, they acted out, and have been living together peacefully for years. Amazed at this unbelievable friendly bond between the lion, tiger and bear, Hedgecoth could not explain how the trio had managed to get along together so well for so long. She felt that the tough times the three animals went through while they were young bonded them together, as they only had had each other for comfort.
When these three different species of animals can live together happily as friends, don't we humans need to learn something from them!?
