Humpback whale off Cape Cod disentangled from fishing line

The Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies says the whale was reported entangled Tuesday just outside Cape Cod Bay by a member of the public.

The Cape Cod Times reports the whale had “multiple wraps of line wound tightly around its fluke,” and had to be cut free using a long pole with a knife attached to it.

It was the 11th whale rescue this year, the highest in the group’s 28 years.
