new type of bear discovered.
this could maybe help the polar to survive the extinction they face with global warming and not being able to stay out on the ice flows until june.

maybe it just means the polar bears are adapting to not having tons of ice around?

Roger Kuptana, an Inuit tracker from the Northwest Territories, suspected the American hunter he was guiding had shot a hybrid bear after noticing its white fur was spotted brown and it had the long claws and slightly humped back of a grizzly.

Territorial officials seized the bear's body and a DNA test from Wildlife Genetics International, a lab in British Columbia, confirmed the hybrid was born of a polar bear mother and grizzly father.

``It's something we've all known was theoretically possible because their habitats overlap a little bit and their breeding seasons overlap a little bit,'' said Ian Stirling, a biologist with the Canadian Wildlife Service in Edmonton, Alberta. ``It's the first time it's known to have happened in the wild.''

He said the first person to realize something was different about the bear - shot and killed last month on the southern end of Banks Island in the Beaufort Sea - was Kuptana, the guide.

``These guides know their animals and they recognized that there were a number of things that didn't look quite right for a polar bear,'' Stirling told The Associated Press. The bear's eyes were ringed with black, its face was slightly indented, it had a mild hump to its back and long claws.
