    I blatantly stole this post from the I fucking love science facebook page, but I think it is for a great cause. I don't post a lot on here, but I've been a creeper for at least 5 years. I see a lot of people fund kickstarter projects, so maybe people would be willing to donate for a good cause.

    A lion and tiger and bear; oh my!

    As cubs a lion, a tiger, and a bear had been owned by a drug dealer who did not properly care for them. The bear’s harness grew into his skin because the owner did not alter it as the animal grew. They had been abused and neglected early in life, but were finally rescued. The bear's harness was surgically removed.

    They had been taken in by an Noah's Ark Animal Sanctuary in Georgia, an institution that runs solely on donations. The staff initially tried to separate them due to obvious concerns that the three large predators would fight. During the trial of separation, the animals were uncooperative and behaved poorly. Once reunited, the three calmed down and were well behaved.

    Twelve years later, the three friends spend their days playing, cuddling, and eating together. While the sanctuary would prefer to leave them together, new federal regulations on fence height are threatening to separate them. It will cost nearly half a million dollars to update the facility and meet the October deadline. A crowdsourcing donation campaign is going until Sept 24 to allow BLT to remain together as a family.

    Read the rules, still gotta ask a staff member even if it's for a "good cause."

    I did read it, but I guess I misinterpreted it. I thought where I was promoting a shelter and not a website that it would be okay. I guess since it is a website that you have to visit to donate to the shelter that makes sense though. Sorry.
