SeaWorld Rescue Team Helps Disentangle Young Humpback Whale

The SeaWorld Rescue Team recently came to the aid of a young humpback whale entangled in fishing gear off the coast of San Diego. The humpback whale was laboring as it tried to swim under the strain of the fishing gear wrapped around its tail flukes. For this young whale, it was a life-threatening situation. The SeaWorld Rescue Team, assisted by several other agencies, was able to give the whale a second chance at life. Watch the video below. (NOAA MMHSRP Permit #18786)
