An orca that had become entangled in a crayfish pot off a New Zealand beach cried for the help of nearby orcas, but is alive thanks to a local diver who plunged in with a knife and cut the mammal loose. Part of the event was videotaped, and the orca's..

'People of the sea' is an appropriate nickname for Orcas, Dolphins, and most other cetacea. This unfortunate Orca showed intelligence as it waited to be released from teh crayfish pot rope. I hope the divers also removed the errant crayfish pot; we should put sonar flags on the things and teach the cetacea to steer clear of them! Our litter in the ocean is a serious safety hazard, and I'm not just referring to sunken ships.
