As we all know, the cruel and disgusting acts brought upon Buddy the Labrador retriever in April 2021 in Tate County outraged not only the community, but everyone from around the world who heard this story. If you don’t know what happened to Buddy, a kid under the age of 12 tied an electrical cord around his neck and set him on fire. Animal cruelty laws in Mississippi are not strict enough! Animals cannot speak or ask for our help, they depend on people like me and you to speak up for them! Because the juvenile that did this to buddy was under the age of 12, no criminal charges will be brought against him. Without proper consequences, people do not learn their lessons and will continue to harm animals. I'm asking for change in this state. Please change the laws! We need more strict and harsh consequences/punishments for minors and adults who commit these heinous crimes! Age should not matter when you purposely hurt an innocent animal. Animals like Buddy need our help! I'm asking for a law named "Buddy's Law" in his honor.
