This is really a whale of a tale! 

The Chilean Navy had an interesting day when they had to rescue a trapped southern whale in the seas of the Patagonia region. The poor mammal got confined in a fishing net and became so tangled it couldn’t move at all.

After more than an hour performing the rescue, the divers were finally able to release the whale.
