The fifth district reports an unusual incident that recently occurred in Elmont.
The Fifth Ward station building received a phone call from a dog trainer transporting a dog in a crate to Uniondale. During the drive, the Bentley dog had managed to stick its head into a circular opening provided for its sight and was beginning to show signs of distress.
Sgt. Kananowitz, officers Arbisi, Clark, and Marcantonatos provided water, a blanket, and comfort to keep Bentley hydrated and calm, and to alleviate its distress. Officers Hanrahan and Vinciguerra from the emergency services unit responded and carefully removed the rivets and the top of the box.
The officers were able to meticulously cut through the diamond plate circle wedging Bentley’s head. Upon release from the crate, Bentley was rated and rated healthy with no visible injuries.
