A Tale of two very lucky Whales!!

Yesterday was not a good day for two very unlucky humpback whales on the Gold Coast .... we had not one but two unfortunate incidents where these gorgeous creatures were caught in nets.

One was caught in shark net. He was set free by a brave passing boatie whom dived into the waters, armed with only a kitchen knife, to free the whale.

The other was caught in a commercial fishing net. She freed by a Seaworld staff member whom again had to jump into the water with the whale to cut the net free.
