Salmon seiner turns tow boat

The commercial fishing vessel Leah C tows away a dead humpback whale that was carried into the Port of Valdez on the bulbous bow of the oil tanker Kodiak, which works for Exxon Mobil. The captain of the Leah C, Bernie Culbertson of Valdez, took the carcass to sea for disposal on Wednesday. NOAA Fisheries Enforcement is investigating the whale strike.
