OUTDOORS Alaska Science Forum When he heard the news of a grizzly-polar bear hybrid shot in Canada's Arctic last month, Tom Seaton thought back to an unusual polar bear hide he'd once seen at Nelson Walker's home in Kotzebue.

Hybrid grizzly-polar bear a curiosity

American hunter Jim Martell, left, is seen with a hybrid bear he shot while on a hunting expedition on Banks Island, Northwest Territory, Canada, in April 2006. Genetic tests showed the bear had a polar bear for a mother and a grizzly bear for a father. Roger Kuptana, center, right, was the guide on the expedition. The other men are unidentified.
