Entangled gray whale freed after dramatic marathon rescue effort

By: Pete Thomas, GrindTV.com

A whale-watching adventure late Friday off Southern California developed into a dramatic and prolonged rescue effort after a young Pacific gray whale was spotted trailing about 50 feet of a commercial fisherman’s gill-net. A trained disentanglement team led by Dave Anderson was successful in freeing the 30-foot whale Saturday evening off Dana Point in what the team described as a miraculous event (see video below for some of the action).

One thought on “Entangled gray whale freed after dramatic marathon rescue effort

  1. The video was so heartwarming. And so ever said that animals don’t feel? To know that the whale came up and acknowledged the people after, was tearful.
    I am so grateful for people like them and you.
