Bureaucrats are so predictable. The diver who spotted the whale trapped in the shark net did not fill out a form 3413.7-53B before freeing the whale from a municipal shark net. This offends their sense of authority.

Some might imagine that it's actually about discouraging untrained people from risking their lives in situations that require professionals. Except there's this evidence. A "non-professional" diver succeeded. Anyway, it's about the bureaucrats sense of self-importance.

the actions we saw earlier this week were reckless and completely unnecessary

I wish they'd have reported on why they said that. It appears that the whale would have died without intervention, are they saying that's not the case?

"It is important that people allow the professionals to do their jobs in circumstances like this," Mr Furner said.

Does the fire department have a special whale rescue squad or something?

I think they are saying that he should have called the authorities. I'm not sure though if the whale was in immediate danger or not. Probably was.

In an earlier article he did call the authorities first and then waited several hours but they didn't show up. Only then did he free the whale.

To the fisheries department, civilian safety overrides whale safety. Hard to argue wth that. However, feel-good stories are few and far between and this one has the best possible outcome.
