A DNA test has confirmed what zoologists, hunters and aboriginal trackers in the far northern reaches of Canada have dreamed of for years: the first documented case of a grizzly-polar bear in the wild.Whoa, a Grizlar. That is pretty cool (and don't be thinking of calling it a Polzly, that's just plain silly).
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.
Now, I am on the record as saying I do not condone interspecies sex. I don't know if that is legal up there in Canada, but it shouldn't be. Just because you are a beast, doesn't mean it isn't beastiality. And just because it happened in nature doesn't make it natural.
And don't be thinking that I am a racist because this was between a brown and a white bear. Wrong. This isn't about the color of their
The DNA results were good news for the 65-year-old hunter, who was facing a possible $909 fine and up to a year in jail for shooting a grizzly.Yeah, good news. The man shoots the one and only known wild Grizlar in all of history and we can all breath a sigh of relief that it wasn't one of the 50,000+ grizzlies.
