Whale watchers spot entangled humpback whale

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) A marine rescue team is seeking the public's help in finding a humpback whale with rope wrapped around its tail flukes.

The whale was last seen with the large, green, polypropylene line off Maui.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser (http://bit.ly/1aTwPGn) reports people on the Pacific Whale Foundation boat Ocean Discovery spotted the whale at 4 p.m. Tuesday about 1.5 miles outside of Lahaina Harbor.

A rescue team from Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary hopes to remove the line.

A sighting of the entangled whale can be reported to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration fisheries hotline at (888) 256-9840.
