LA JOLLA (NEWS 8) — Crews were on the lookout Sunday for a gray whale who got caught in a dangerous situation off the coast of La Jolla. 

A whale watching group spotted the 25-foot whale Sunday morning about a mile off-shore. 

The whale had become entangled in gill-netting, but by the time rescuers got to the scene the whale had taken off. 

Officials said they will keep an eye out for the whale for the next few weeks.
