Illegal fishing lines are still used all the time, and it is always the animals who will pay for them in the end. The whale in this video could have been a perfect example of this phenomenon. Fortunately, a conscientious diver was able to do something about the situation.
This video manages to capture the confusion inherent in the situation. At first, the whale almost looks fake, given the nature of the footage and the strange perspective that the diver had to use. However, the situation ultimately led to a very successful rescue. The whale was fine, and even the parts of the fishing line that were embedded in the whale were successfully removed.
People should please SHARE this video on Facebook, since the situation that it depicts is inherently exciting, and the video manages to show the very divergent effects that human beings can have on the rest of nature.
