Leo the lion, Shere Khan the tiger and Baloo the bear had been living with each other for more than 15 years. Rescued as cubs in 2001 from a drug dealer's house in Atlanta, Georgia after years of mistreatment, the trio found comfort with each other.
Realising their bond and that no one would keep them apart, Noah's Ark Animal Sanctuary kept the BLT trio together.
Sadly, Leo passed away earlier this month and the sanctuary has released a fitting video in memory of the lion and the famous BLT trio.
"He was truly one of a kind, and will never be forgotten," said the animal sanctuary.
Our thoughts are with Baloo and Shere Khan, who have lost a true friend.
