Woman walks husband on a leash after curfew, ends up with $3000 fine

After walking her husband on a leash after curfew, a Canadian lady receives a $3000 punishment.

The lady defended herself and claimed she was bringing her dog, pointing to her partner, out on a walk, as authorized under the exceptions granted by Quebec’s premier.

In an unusual situation, a Canadian lady tried to get over Covid-19’s curfew limitations by walking her spouse on a leash! The news has gone viral on the internet.

Quebec Premier Francois Legault imposed a curfew after 8 p.m. across the city in response to a recent spike in daily cases and deaths. Authorities, on the other hand, had not expected to see a man wearing a leash around his neck.

Local police in the Sherbrooke neighborhood told media that the couple was spotted going downtown at 9 p.m. on Saturday evening and refused to cooperate with officials. For breaking the restrictions, the pair were fined $1,500 apiece.

The report added, “When questioned by police, the couple said they were happy to receive the ticket and claimed they were following the rules set forth by Premier Francois Legault.”

According to Montreal Gazette,  “One of them had the other on a leash, and she said she was taking her dog, pointing to her partner, out on a walk, as allowed under the exceptions provided by Quebec’s premier under its curfew law.”

According to a report by media, when the police protested, the woman in issue strongly stated that she would not pay the fine.

Officials in Quebec have stated that individuals may walk their dogs beyond the curfew of 8 p.m. as long as they stay within one kilometer of their home.

The story drew a lot of attention on social media, but not for the proper reasons, and many people were confounded.
