Another threat to Whaling, Alaska Department of Fish and Game

More humpback news: The Alaska Department of Fish and Game says it remains saddened by the death last week of a humpback whale killed accidentally by agency staff fishing for herring during a research project.

The 50-foot mammal became entangled in the 58-foot vessel's net off Prince William Sound and drowned. Humpback whales are a federally endangered species, but charges are not expected to be filed.
