Australian NSW police spot entangled whale

A video from the New South Wales police showed the giant creature struggling in the waters, with what looked like a rope trailing behind it.

Marine rescue group ORRCA posted on its social media website that the entangled creature is believed to be a humpback whale.

A rescue mission to free the whale has been paused due to fading light, according to the authorities. Spotters will head back to the NSW north coast on Tuesday (June 8) to attempt to find the creature.
