This photo released by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources shows Right whale #4057 circling to the right as responders from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission throw a custom-made "cutting grapple," hoping to sever the long strand of fishing rope exiting the whale's mouth. Seconds later the heavy rope parted and the whale swam away unencumbered. (AP Photo/ Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, taken under NOAA permit #15488)
