Rescuers Work Desperately To Free Drowning Whale

Humans and nature are frequently at odds, and our habits usually affect sea life severely. But luckily there are people like James Moskito, who do their best to help animals in distress – especially if it’s caused by humans in the first place! So when James and his team of professional divers saw a whale entangled in a fisherman’s crab net, they acted fast.

Somehow, the whale knew that the people surrounding them were there to help! “Some of the individual ropes went into the blubber two or three inches deep. I put my hand on the whale and I told the whale, ‘Okay. This is gonna hurt.’ The whale was so cooperative, it would open its mouth and a guy would put his hand up inside of it and pull pieces of rope out of the baleen, one by one,” James said fondly.
After five tedious hours of diving and cutting yards of rope, the team was finally able to free the whale. Just before it swam away forever, the whale nudged and bumped into each of the team members as if to say, “goodbye.” This rescue is something they’ll remember forever!
