Lions and Tigers and Bears - Oh My

I love this story:
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.
They're natural predators of each other, but in this setting, they hang out as the best of friends. Makes me wish humans were as good at overcoming their natural differences. Rest of the story is here.
