A TOP cop accused of filming himself having sex with his police dog has also been charged with having a sickening stash of child abuse images.
Terry Yetman, 38, is due to appear in court later this month charged with 40 counts of sexually abusing animals.
The cop turned himself in last December after a warrant was issued for his arrest when cops launched a four-month probe.
They discovered bestiality porn on electronic devices belonging to the Louisiana patrolman involving his retired police dog.
Yetman, who won an award for his work with domestic violence victims, has now also been charged with 31 counts of having indecent images of children.
He is currently being held on a £475,000 bond and the investigation is continuing with Yetman possibly facing more charges.
A petition launched by In Defense of Animals has received more than 20,000 signatures demanding the cop get the maximum sentence if convicted of abusing the dog.
Doll Stanley, campaign director, said: “Thousands of supporters were moved by this horrific case and want to see justice done.

“A healthy society protects its innocents: vulnerable children, animals, elderly citizens.
“Sexual predators must be made to fear the loss of freedom and a stinging financial impact.
“We call on District Attorney Marvin Schuyler to take zero tolerance stance on bestiality and prosecute Yetman to the fullest if he is found guilty.
“No plea deals or mercy should be offered for his atrocious crimes.”
If convicted on the bestiality charges, Yetman could receive a maximum five year prison sentence and a £1,528 fine.
