Condolence to the family of Mr. Howlett.
“Friends told the Canadian Press he had saved some two dozen whales over 15 years.
Mackie Green, a friend of Mr Howlett who had founded the rescue team with him, said: “They got the whale totally disentangled and then some kind of freak thing happened and the whale made a big flip.”
“Joe definitely would not want us to stop because of this,” he added. “This is something he loved and there’s no better feeling than getting a whale untangled, and I know how good he was feeling after cutting that whale clear.”
