(LocalXpress) A man who helped free a whale from a fishing net says he's convinced it came to the Digby waterfront looking for help.
Barry O'Neil was doing fibreglass work on a boat around noon Wednesday when Dallas Kenley, one of two men working with him, called out.
"He was under the boat, and he kept yelling, 'Come look at this, you won't believe it.' "

O'Neil and Nathaniel Denton rushed over to see a six-metre minke whale, burdened by about nine kilograms of net tangled in its nose and mouth.
"He was laying sideways, not moving much at all," said O'Neil.
