Liberating A Drowning Whale

Liberating a drowning whale. This is an amazing 8-minute video of young humpback whale being freed from a huge tangle of fishing netting that was about to drown him. After a couple of boaters from the Great Whale Conservancy came upon this whale, they used small penknives to cut through the huge tangles mass of netting. When they had finally freed him, the whale swam off a quarter mile and treated his rescuers to a spectacular series of twenty or thirty leaps into the air.
