Noahs Ark Animal Sanctuary
SPONSOR BALOO THE AMERICAN BLACK BEAR FOR A DAY OR WEEK
As a cub, Baloo (along with a tiger and lion cub) was discovered in a drug dealer’s basement in Atlanta, Georgia. After being confiscated and placed at Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary, Baloo and his tiger and lion friends were nursed back to health and were kept in the same enclosure as they had become extremely bonded after their frightening ordeal in the basement. To this day at 13 years old, Baloo the bear, Leo the Lion, and Shere Kahn the tiger (aka: "The BLT") still live together in harmony. Baloo is a big bear, weighing in around 600 pounds, and he must stay fit as he gets older. The best way to accomplish this is to make Baloo “work” for his food like wild bears would using a feeder toy designed especially for bears called a bobbin. He must manipulate the toy in certain directions for treats to fall out, therefore keeping his mind and body active.
