Polar bear grizzly hybrid

bearThe first study of such a hybrid was done at the Osnabruck Zoo in Germany.  In 2006 I remember hearing an account of a big game hunter taken a polar/grizzly hybrid in the wild, but this is the first time I've heard about them in captivity.  It's interesting to see how the traits intermingled such as the specialized hair of the polar bear.  I wonder with the current climate changes if we won't see more of this happening in the wild.
