Crews free humpback whale tangled in fishing line off Hawaii
February 22 at 7:23 AM
The Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary said Saturday that its craft got within 10 feet of the mammal a day earlier and the crew used a pole equipped with a knife to saw the line free.
Ed Lyman of the sanctuary says several hundred feet of line was cut away.
The entangled whale was first spotted Feb. 13 off the Big Island’s Kona Coast.
Experts say such entanglements could result in drowning, starvation, infections and increased susceptibility to ship strikes.
