COP WHO LEFT HIS DOG PARTNER TO DIE IN A HOT CAR FOR 38 HOURS NOW FACES FIVE YEARS IN PRISON FOR FELONY ANIMAL CRUELTY


A cop in Oklahoma has been charged with animal cruelty after leaving his police dog in his scorching squad hot car for 38 hours. Matthew Peck, a sheriff’s deputy in Stephens County, had been partners with German shepherd Bak for four years. But on August 24, after being called to the scene of a traffic stop, Peck allegedly left the eight-year-old dog in his vehicle before going home.

Peck found Bak dead on August 26, some 38 hours later. Matthew Peck (left), a former sheriff’s deputy in Oklahoma, has been charged in the death of his police dog Bak (right) after the German shepherd was left in a hot car for 38 hours

The sheriff’s deputy was fired after Undersheriff John Smith investigated the case.

‘We were shocked and we’re saddened,’ Stephens County Sheriff Wayne McKinney told NewsChannel 4. ‘This is a loss of one of our deputies.’

On Monday, Peck was charged with felony cruelty to animals. Bak (left), an eight-year-old German shepherd, had been partnered with the deputy for four years


Peck now faces five years in prison for the death of his eight-year-old dog partner Bak. A local veterinarian said Bak was in good health and could’ve ‘easily survived through the night,’ News9 reported.

But he was left without food or water — as temperatures reached about 99 degrees, court records show. Bak likely died from a heat stroke, the veterinarian said.
