July 11, 2012
CapeCodOnline: A second humpback whale in as many days was disentangled off Chatham Saturday [July 7].
The Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies’ Marine Animal Entanglement Response Team responded to the stranded animal just before 12:00 p.m.
“Line that was attached to heavy gear at the sea floor was caught in the whales mouth and wrapped around its head, making normal breathing difficult for the animal,” according to a statement from the center.
