I bet whoever put these crab nets didn’t expect they’d catch something as big as this whale. Unfortunately, it nearly cost one of the largest animals that ever lived its life.
James Moskito recalls the time this gentle giant basically asked humans for help because they were his only chance of not drowning. Weighed down by the huge nets the whale found enough strength to surface next to Moskito’s vessel where he and other volunteers spent 5 hours in shark infested waters cutting the huge mammal free. The way it showed gratitude almost made me cry.
