Rescuers save humpback whale from unlikely trap
GRAYS HARBOR COUNTY -- A coastal research group helped untangle a humpback whale completely immobilized by crab pot gear of the coast of Washington Tuesday morning, Cascadia Research said. The Cascadia Research group received a call from an area crab boat that a humpback whale was spotted entangled in crab gear off the entrance to Grays Harbor. The whale, which was fairly close to shore, was reported to be about 35-40 feet long and 3-5 years old with crab gear around its tail stock and flukes.
