(YouTube.com) -- November 7, 2012, diving aboard the Solmar V (www.solmarv.com) at Roca Partida, near Socorro Island, about 250 miles south of Baja, Mexico a crew came upon a mature whale shark in some amount of distress due to a large rope cinched around it's girth. It must have been there for some time, as the rope was encrusted with barnacles, and was cutting deeply into the flesh of the shark.

On the second dive of the morning, the crew located the whale shark once again and were able to cut the rope loose, freeing the shark which slowly swam away.
