In this Dec. 18, 2008 photo provided by The Georgia Department of Natural Resources, biologist Mark Dodd prepares to cut rope off of from an entangled right whale named Equator offshore of Cumberland Island, Ga. The endangered right whale that Georgia wildlife biologists once freed from fishing line caught around its midsection has returned off the coast four years later with a newborn calf in tow. Whale watchers at the state Department of Natural Resources are celebrating, saying it's the first time a whale saved from entanglement in Georgia waters has come back to give birth.
