Watching one whale, while another dislikes being watched

A Coast Guard cutter and a NOAA vessel have created a 500-yard safety zone around a humpback whale caught in a lobster pot off Sandy Hook, N.J. The whale is visible on the surface and breathing, according to a report.

Read the Coast Guard press release.

Meanwhile, a whale off Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, took exception to a whale-watching boat that got a little too close. A series of photos seems to show one whale launching itself at one of the boats.
