A policeman from Danzhou, Hainan province, bought a live wild egret from a local restaurant only so he could set it free last week.

Deng Xianghai was on an official trip to Sandu when he spotted the caged bird at a restaurant.

The restaurant owner told the cop his son had captured the egret from the fields and he could have it for 50 yuan ($7.5).

Deng immediately handed the eatery boss the amount and freed the egret into the wild.

"The way he was inquiring about the bird I thought he was going to eat it. I’m surprised he let it go," the restaurant owner said.
