A dwarf whale cub (acutorostrata Balaenoptera) was saved last Sunday by the team from Mar Ilimitado, a company from Sagres that operates in the area of ​​whale watching.

The animal was at risk of drowning, as it was attached "to a fishing tackle (through the mouth)," says the company in a Facebook post.

After the rescue maneuvers, which involved the presence of a diver in the water to cut the cable, «the animal began to swim slowly».

In the publication, Mar Ilimitado says it hopes that "after this terrible difficulty, this dwarf whale cub will survive and find its way to a healthy life, far from danger, in its natural habitat".
