SANDSTONE, Minn. – An unexpected bond has formed between two animals at the Wildcat Sanctuary in Sandstone.

A friendship is blossoming between Shazam, a black leopard whose jaguar friend died last year and Nikita, a white tiger.

Nikita was rescued from one of the most notorious criminals and abusers.

Who would’ve ever imagined a leopard and a tiger would become such great buds.
