This is old, but I just came across it. George W. Bush’s Journey: A Philosophy With Roots in Conservative Texas Soil quotes a childhood friend of George W Bush:
“We were terrible to animals,” recalled Mr. Throckmorton, laughing. A dip behind the Bush home turned into a small lake after a good rain, and thousands of frogs would come out.
“Everybody would get BB guns and shoot them,” Mr. Throckmorton said. “Or we’d put firecrackers in the frogs and throw them and blow them up.”
