Humpback Whale Gets Caught In Fishing Net. But Rather Than Thrash, He Stays Completely Still

Sea creatures are so much more intelligent than we give them credit for.

Though they can’t speak like you and I they are still incredibly intuitive and know how to react in order to survive and certain predicaments.

This was recently the case for a humpback whale who got tangled in some fishing net right off of Salcombe, England. 

What more is that this wasn’t the first time he got caught in a lure — the same thing has happened to him 10 days earlier.

But since he was incredibly perceptive about his last incident, and how the British Divers Marine Life Rescue helped to save him.

So he stayed still and was completely cooperative as the team helped set him free.

“Fortunately this time it was a much easier operation and with the experience we had from the last time, it was all done and dusted in about an hour,” rescue member Dan Jarvis told the BBC.

According to Jarvis, the big ocean-dweller has been in the area for about a month and has amused tourists visiting the town with occasional glimpses of his back and tail.

It also likely stopped in route to Norway and Iceland to feed on the tiny, plentiful fish further inland — so it was lead into the area by his stomach!

Check down below to learn more about the great rescue, which was made much easier due to the patient whale!

And don’t forget to SHARE the sweet clip with friends and family on Facebook.
