Whale caught head-to-tail in fishing nets off Maui

By Associated Press


Federal officials are trying to free a whale caught in fishing nets off Hawaii.

The Coast Guard said Thursday it received a call from a charter boat reporting an adult male humpback whale was entangled in fishing nets from head to tail. The boat reported that the whale was dragging two orange buoys in the water off Maui.

A Coast Guard crew from Station Maui and a National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration marine mammal specialist headed to the scene to evaluate and tag the whale.

The Coast Guard says the team is following the whale in a 45-foot response boat.
