In April of 2021, a 12 year old Mississippi boy admitted to strangling and setting fire to his dog buddy. Under the current laws at that time, his age prevented him from facing criminal charges or from being psychologically evaluated. This sparked outrage and spawned Buddy's Law; a law aimed at ensuring psychological evaluation and rehabilitation to a child who commits heinous violence against animals.
