When rescuers sailed to a spot off the New Jersey shore, they found a young humpback whale, bobbing near the surface but unable to move much.  Although it was able to break the water’s surface and breathe, “the whale was likely anchored to that spot, much like a dog tied to a leash,” said Scott Landry, head of an agency that rescues entangled marine animals.
