Throw it away...It's only going to get worse.
That log was from the top of the tree and probably had a ratio of about 60% tree mass to 40% water. When that much water disappears from the log as it dries, it makes those cracks because there wasn't much log material to begin with, and without that water there anymore, no more log.
I only use the bottom 20 feet of trees anymore. Stronger, older part of the tree that only has maybe 10% water. I got tired of throwing away truckloads of logs that looked like yours.
