Whale Mistakes Yacht For Mother

A lost humpback whale calf no more than two months old has mistaken a yacht for its mother and is trying to suckle from the 36-foot-long boat.

According to rescuers, the whale was seen this weekend off a beach in Sydney, Australia. It soon came across the boat and would not detach itself. The yacht moved into deeper water, and the calf eventually detached though it stayed in the vicinity.

Rescuers are watching the whale. They hope the calf swims out to deeper water in search of its mother or another pod of whales.
