Whale rescuers free humpback from fishing gear entanglement

By The Associated Press - | Jun 11, 2021

Members of the Marine Animal Entanglement Response team from the Center for Coastal Studies, in Provincetown, Mass., use a knife at the end of a 30-foot pole to cut rope and free a mature female humpback whale named Valley from its entanglement in fishing gear, Wednesday, June 9, 2021, in waters outside Boston Harbor. The effort to free the humpback whale from entanglement in fishing gear took about three days, and ended in success, marine mammal experts said Thursday.
