The line was found tangled between the whale’s mouth and tail but was cut away in an early morning rescue effort.
The eight and a half metre whale was found severely emaciated and likely starved to death hours after beaching itself.

David Clattenburg, a fishing officer with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) said, from his experience, the thick nylon line is used for bottom fishing -- but not in Canada.
