A humpback whale entangled in line was spotted off California’s Dana Point last week.
The whale could be the same one seen on Oct. 27, according to officials.
Whale watchers on board vessels from Captain Dave’s Dolphin and Whale Safari and Dana Wharf Sportfishing saw the entangled mammal last week.
Crew members were able to capture video of the whale.
Officials don’t believe the line is fishing gear, but it is wrapped around the humpback whale’s head with a drum or buoy attached.
