Fishermen Free Trapped Orca Tangled in Netting

Playing Good Samaritans Come to the Rescue of Trapped Whales

When a whale got trapped in a net, fishermen off the coast of Peru came to its rescue.

The fishermen came across the young orca entangled in the netting in December and worked together to roll it out, giving the whale a pat on the back once it was free. 

As the orca swam away, it made a noise that the crew took as a sign the animal was thankful for the help.
