Woman fined after walking husband on a lead and telling police he was a dog

A woman in Canada has been fined for breaking Covid curfew by walking her husband on a lead. When stopped by police, she claimed that her partner was in fact a dog. On Saturday, Quebec set curfew for people to be indoors between 8pm and 5am in a bid to halt the spread of coronavirus. However, dog walkers are allowed to be outside during this time in an exception to the rules. Police spotted the pair around 9pm, just after the rules took effect. Both of them were fined CA$1,546 despite claiming they were acting within the rules for pets. Isabelle Gendron, of the Sherbrooke Police Department, told La Tribune they ‘did not co-operate with the police at all’ and the woman said she would not pay the ticket.
