Police came to the rescue of a dog who had gotten his head stuck in one of the holes of the crate he was being transported in on Long Island.

The incident took place around 9:40 a.m., Saturday, April 17, in Elmont, said the Nassau County Police.

According to police, the department received a telephone call for assistance from a dog trainer who was transporting a dog in a crate to Uniondale. 

While en route the dog, Bentley, managed to get his head stuck in a circular opening designed for his view and was starting to display signs of distress. 

Sgt. Kananowitz, along with officers  Arbisi, Clark and Marcantonatos supplied water, a blanket, and comfort to help keep Bentley hydrated and calm to lessen his distress, police said.

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.
