Humpback Whale Freed From Entanglement In Unalaska Bay
Unalaskans helped to free a humpback whale last weekend after it was caught in fishing lines and buoys in Unalaska Bay.
A responder with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) led the disentanglement team, which included local port officials, NOAA officers, and residents like Andy Dietrick and Dan and Sue Magone.
KUCB's Laura Kraegel spoke with John Moran about his team's 12-hour response that spanned two days.
