Humpback Whale

Here's a link to a great article in the Wednesday, December 14 San Francisco Chronicle about a 45-50 foot, 40 ton, humpback whale that was rescued by divers this week. When the whale was found by fisherman it had 20 crab-pot ropes, which are 240 feet long with weights every 60 feet, wrapped around its body and through it's mouth. Divers came to its rescue and spent and hour cutting it free, and afterwards the whale appeared to thank them by coming up to each of them and nuzzling them like a dog.
