Right Whale Sight

“Cook is among hundreds of fishermen in Grand Manan – an [Canadian] island of about 2,500 people – who have been temporarily banned from fishing after the sighting of a single North Atlantic right whale.
“This is unprecedented,” said Cook, chairman of the Grand Manan Fishermen’s Association’s lobster advisory board. “We’ve never seen this before, and hopefully we never see it again.”” https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/jul/06/canada-grand-manan-ban-fishing-endangered-whale

A lobster advised him not to worry: keep overfishing and destroying habitat and the few hundred right whales will soon be none left whales.


“Wildlife experts have saved the life of an endangered right whale which had 280 feet of fishing rope caught in its mouth.” (http://uk.whales.org/news/2014/02/whale-with-280-feet-of-fishing-rope-in-its-mouth-is-saved)

An altogether wrong illustration of the expression ‘hanging a right’.
