Entangled North Atlantic Right Whale Gives Birth In Cape Waters

A North Atlantic Right Whale that gave birth while entangled in rope is in Cape Cod waters along with her calf. 

The Center for Coastal Studies says "Snow Cone", a 17-year-old, was seen with her new offspring on the Atlantic side of the outer Cape on Sunday. 

Snow Cone lost her first calf to a ship strike in 2020. 

The Center for Coastal Studies removed about three-hundred feet of rope when the whale was in Plymouth last year. 

Scientists are concerned that the remaining entanglement could endanger the animal's life.
