Ugh, 'kids being kids' is not an excuse. Those are kids that have no discipline! If I had done something like that as a kid, I would have gotten a wallop! I'm not saying you have to spank kids, but sheesh, they do have to be taught acceptable behavior.
All animals deserve respect, not just the cute and pretty ones.Without "bugs", we would lose about 1/3 of our food, be nose high in decay, and entire ecosystems (including everything that supports the popular animals!) would collapse.
