Video Shows Whale Getting Hit by Boat

A humpback whale with a fishing net stuck on its head entered the Shrewsbury River in New Jersey, presumably while chasing bunker, and was struck by a pleasure boater as the whale was returning to Sandy Hook Bay.

A video captured the whale emerging to take a breath when a recreational boater collided with the cetacean as it was about to pass under the Highlands bridge.

Apparently, the whale was not severely injured, and it returned to deeper waters before authorities could come out and remove the net from its head, which did not interfere with its ability to eat.
