2 Humpbacks entangled off New England

BAR HARBOR, Maine – Rescue crews were attempting Sunday to free two humpback whales entangled in commercial fishing nets or marine rope in New England coastal waters.

One rescue crew arrived at a site off the Maine coast where a humpback was entangled in marine gear, said Theresa Barbo of the Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies in Massachusetts.

People aboard a whale watch boat spotted the distressed humpback Saturday. The Maine Marine Patrol found the whale early Sunday in heavy fog.
