GOLD COAST, AUSTRALIA (7 NETWORK/CNN) - A baby whale found itself entangled in a shark net off Australia's Gold Coast.

Shark control officials moved in to free the animal as the whale's mother waited nearby.

Rescuers say the calf remained calm and took off as soon as it was free.

More than 18,000 whales are making their way south for the end of the migration season.
