Whale freed from shark net

Whale freed from shark net

Lauren

Check out this video of a humpback whale being rescued, after she became tangled in a shark's net off the Gold Coast in Australia! A tourist spotted the whale in trouble just 300 metres from the beach and raised the alarm. A crack rescue team from Sea World rushed to help, but they had to beware of three other large whales that were trying to protect their trapped friend. It took the rescuers two hours to cut the net away from the whale's head and fin, but luckily she swam away to continue her migration with only a few cuts and scratches!

Whales are mammals and they breathe air through their blowhole in the top of their heads, because they can’t breathe underwater!
