GALVESTON, Texas - A dad starts recording when his 10-year-old son, Hunter Stevens, catches a huge sting ray.

It happened Sunday while the two were kayaking near Galveston, Texas.

The boy's excitement, though, was tempered with sadness when he realized the ray was injured. Hunter said "mean people" were responsible for hurting the fish.

The boy then gave it a kiss, before setting it free.
