While out on a research cruise with the Center for Coastal Studies Humpback Whale Studies Program on December 20, the Marine Animal Entanglement Response team happened to see a young humpback whale get tangled on a buoy line.

“In a rare, chance occurrence, the Marine Animal Entanglement Response team witnessed the whale become entangled,” the center said. “Within an hour the team helped remove the gear from the whale.”

The Center for Coastal Studies described the encounter in full detail in a <a href="" target="_blank">post</a> on their Facebook page.
