A FIRE crew rubbed coconut oil on a dog's head to release it from a gate in Bournemouth last night.

The Redhill Park crew attended the scene in Talbot Woods at 10.36pm following reports of a dog with its head stuck in a metal gate.

A spokesperson for Dorset Fire and Rescue Service said: “Crews rubbed coconut oil on the dog's head to assist in its removal from the gate. The dog was not injured.”

An entire fire crew and support engine tied down for this?
Should have just cut the dogs head off.
Problem solved, get on with some real work.
