Hybrid ‘Brolar Bears’ Could Spread Through The Arctic as The Planet Warms (CARLY CASSELLA, 11/17/22, Science Alert)

In 2006, a hunter in the Canadian Arctic shot a bear that didn’t look like the others. DNA testing would later confirm the animal was actually part grizzly, part polar bear.

In the years since, ‘pizzlies’ or ‘brolar bears’ have popped up more and more in North America, and now researchers in Siberia are warning the same could happen elsewhere in the icy north.
