A whale knew it needed help when it got entangled in crab pots near Bodega Bay and it came to these fishermen – and they saved its life. See the video…
Three fishermen were out on their boat near Bodega Bay when they passed a whale that was in distress. It was caught in crab pots and one of the fishermen said: “I mean it was cutting into him to where he was bleeding, so I don’t know how long it would have been til he’s getting ripped apart by sharks. He definitely needed help.”
The men used boat hooks to snag the lines around the whale and started ripping them off. Once the whale understood that the men were trying to help it, the fisherman said: “Once we started getting stuff cut off, it was like he knew we were trying to help him, you know. It would come and it would roll over and be like, almost showing us where the lines were on its fins.”
Once the whale was free, it kept swimming around the boat. The fishermen think this was its way of saying thanks.
Thankfully the fishermen saw the whale and saved it before iut was too late.
The fisherman said:
“If I was to die today, you know, I would know I did something good with my life.”
