While I agree it would be cruel, such hybrids might NOT in fact be mentally unstable, although I'm not sure about the lifespan.
What if your grizzly/human had an above average IQ, and was raised in a loving military environment, in the company of other grizzly hybrids? Properly
set up, your hybrids might not realize that the world wasn't populated by both humans and hybrids living in happy coexistence. Until they were turned
loose on the battlefield to protect their buddies.
Eventually they'd likely figure it out, in which case a short lifespan might be a good idea. But given a stable upbringing with a slow intro to
what's going on, you could likely keep them all happy by their future retirement to Bear Island.
Certainly in literature it's not always Dr Moreau. Heck, when I was a kid one of my favorite programs was a 60's black-and-white program that
featured an unnaturally intelligent dog. (not Lassie, btw). My Dad informed me that it was his opinion that the dog was a dog-human hybrid escaped
from a lab, and since he was into nefarious Army stuff I thought that was as good an explanation as any. Turns out that was correct by canon - the
later remake established that was exactly what had happened. So, if London turned out to be ok, why not Sergeant Griz O'Brian? Not to mention - the
possibility of a human-dog as an infiltrator. Sort of a Mata-Hairy, if you will.
