Yes, he should be jailed for hunting endangered animals for food. That's for sure, the question is  about price gouging, where you are demanded at an outrageous price. It’s more common practice here.

As it is, foreigners in China are often given a menu that contains higher pricing.I don't trust any Chinese restaurant that does not display prices and i have learnt to check everything carefully before i pay, taking a picture of the menu to ensure i am not cheated.

At home all prices must be displayed outside the restaurant.

Police should have told the crooks nothing will be paid until an investigation has been carried out!!
they were wrong to force the customer to pay 1500 rmb
if you want something in life get off your backside, and do it yourself!! don't rely on others to do it for you

I can understand why you consider purchase more carefully in China. Tourists tend to pay more than locals at attractions.

It is a common practice at tourist attractions. If anything, the price gauging has tainted China's reputation as a paradise for tourists.

Many more Chinese should be jailed for serving wild birds and animals in restaurants.  All those are protected under China's law.
