2. This isn't evolution in action, this is hybridization in action...

of course, whether the crossbreeds can be fertile is dependent on how different their parent species are, but this isn't how evolution works, evolution is descent with modification causing speciation through a combination of natural selection, genetic drift, and mutation.

Oh, by the way, I absolutely hate how the media reports on scientific discoveries and facts.
