The Fifth Precinct reports an Unusual Incident that occurred recently in Elmont.
The Fifth Precinct stationhouse received a telephone call for assistance from a dog trainer who was transporting a dog in a crate to Uniondale. While in route the dog, Bentley, had managed to get his head stuck in a circular opening designed for his view and was starting to display signs of distress.  
Sgt. Kananowitz, Officers Arbisi, Clark and Marcantonatos supplied water, a blanket and comfort to help keep Bentley hydrated and calm to lessen his distress. Officers Hanrahan and Vinciguerra from the Emergency Services Unit responded and carefully removed rivets and the top of the crate.  
The Officers were able to meticulously cut through the diamond plate circle that trapped Bentley’s head. Once released from the crate Bentley was evaluated and deemed to be in good health with no visible injuries.
