- A 2019 old video of a kid releasing a big fish inside the river shortly after he caught it has created a newer buzz on social media
- The boy said he had been hoping to catch a fish of the size as he basked in his new victory
- As if on cue, the boy placed the animal back in the river and hoped for a day when he would again see it
Kids are just so wonderful at heart. The video of how a little boy treated a big fish he caught has again shown the pure-heartedness of children.
In a short clip that has been seen over 21 million times, a little kid held a big fish in his hands and was excited that he just made a big catch.
It should be noted that the video once went viral in 2019. It, however, resurfaced online with newer reactions.
Not long after catching the fish, the kid returned the aquatic animal into the river as he petted its back.
"I hope you go back and be better. One day, we're gonna meet back again."
Immediately he released the fish, the animal swam away and it happily wiggled its tail. The little boy screamed in excitement.
Watch the video below:
The video has gathered over 800,000 likes as at the time of writing this report with thousands of comments from tweeps.
Below are some of the reactions:
"I have never, ever, seen anything more perfect than this young man’s interaction with nature. Bravo to whomever raised you, and that calming, reassuring voice behind the camera. I aspire to this."
"What a nice little fisherman."

Meanwhile, Briefly News earlier reported that South Africa's Finance Minister Tito Mboweni was once again cooking up a storm this past weekend. Mboweni, as usual, took to his Twitter page to share pictures of the ingredients he was using to prepare his Sunday night meal.
In his post, Tito revealed that he was preparing one of his all-time favourite meals - tinned fish. In his photo, there are also some spices, tomatoes and of course, two large garlic cloves. Tito all shared some pictures of the finished meal - which by the way did not look as unstomachable as always - and his empty plate after he had enjoyed his home-cooked meal.
