I think there is a pretty big difference between those examples you gave and what happened here. I don't care for putting a hook through a live animal either, but at least it serves a purpose: to provide food/money for a family. I totally disagree with those who use live mice for their pets.
In this case, the only purpose this frog served was to be launched out of a toy for the jollies of some teenagers. No concern was given for the life of this animal, much less the FROG's eyes. My personal belief system leads me to the facts that there are over 6 BILLION people on this planet and are the root of nearly every environmental problem we have. Frogs on the other hand, just want to be left alone yet THEY are the ones in a worldwide decline!
In case you couldn't tell, some of us here ARE more concerned about the frog. It is unfortunate that our social obligations to the preservation of human life supercedes our own ability to reason and logically evaluate the need for justice. It is ironic that our desire to spare the life of our species at any cost will eventually be the death of our species (after all, ALL species go extinct) as we continue to overpopulate our planet and essential resources like water (*gasp* not fossil fuel?) becomes such a scarce commodity it will directly influence our ability to procreate. I can only there is enough water left for frogs to out-survive us!
