Reports recently have revealed mating between grizzly and polar bears in North America, and it is claimed climate change is bringing the two species closer together ...

Hopefully he and the rest will be left alone and not hunted down by picture crazy tourists. just to get their two minutes fame on the Internet or newspapers.

If my memory is correct, a couple of years ago I read that polar bears split from the brown bear about 200-250 thousand years ago, and developed into a new sub-species to take advantage of the niche of polar ice hunting. Err, isn't that an example of that evil "E" word? Btw, grizzlies are a subspecies of the brown bear too.

Perhaps bears are not bigots and don't mind colr differences.

As Richard said, essentially they are the same species, and yes, apparently the chance, random mutation that produced the white was "selected" by evolution for its benefits in polar hunting. That "E" word? Ask the disbelievers, in the corn belt, why they have to keep coming up with new pesticides, year after year, if the pest species do not develop increasingly new resistances?

Well, What do humans do with perfection. Muck it UP ~~ Cross breed dogs, etc, etc
"This is the first case of meeting with the bear of such a colour. It's not an albino, of course, because he has a black nose, rather than pink, as it should be if the bear is albino. But it is very white.'

He believes the explanation is a rare mutation. The bear is about three years old, he said. Soon the animal will begin its 'adult life', and it is possible this 'white brown bear' will pass its colour to future generations?

'On Kamchatka we have in the past spotted brown bears of unusual colors - pale fawn, ginger, and light brown.'

A question for the wildlife experts here is whether the bear will be helped or hindered as it goes it alone. Certainly, as the picture shows, the bears mother had no problems accepting her white cub. "

I would adore to view one of these in wildlife...

NOT LEVE THEM ALONE PERIOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
