Rescue Team Tries to Free Tangled Humpback Whale
There were tense moments for a humpback whale that found itself tangled in fishing ropes. The entrapped giant marine mammal was spotted in the waters off western Canada, near British Columbia’s Texada Island. It was struggling with the ropes of a buoy, part of a prawn fishing operation. As it tried to free itself, the trapped whale was joined by a fellow humpback. But a man-made problem sometimes requires a man-made solution.
