Sadly, animals trapped in nets has become something we see far too often. Off the coast of Italy, a whale is hardly able to move with a mass of fishing net tangled around its tail. Rescuers from both the Coast Guard and a military vessel are out attempting to free the whale, but rescuing an animal of this size is no easy task. Their hard work finally pays off when they snip away the last bits of fishing net and get to watch the whale swim free. Job well done!
