The Marine Animal Entanglement Response rescued a humpback whale on Sept. 12th after it got tangled in fishing gear off Ballston Beach in Truro.
The whale had tangled itself around the base of the tail on some rope. The rope was connected to fishing gear stuck all the way down to the seafloor.
Here is a video of the whale's entanglement:
Thankfully, the whale was still able to reach the surface to breathe. The whale is expected to recover from the incident.
