Woman caught walking husband on LEASH to get around COVID curfew in Canada: cops – By Nelson Oliveira (New York Daily News) / January 12 2021
This husband must have a ruff life.
A Canadian woman was caught walking her partner on a leash as if he were a dog, a hilarious but illegal attempt to get around Quebec’s newly imposed curfew to slow the spread of coronavirus, local media reported Monday.
The woman was spotted walking alongside her fake-dog husband in the city of Sherbrook around 9 p.m. Saturday, an hour after the curfew went in effect, according to CTV News. They were each given a $1,500 fine for violating the rules.
The new measures prohibit Quebec residents from leaving their homes between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m., but they provide numerous exceptions, including one for dog owners. The order states that “a person who must go out so that his dog can do its business” is allowed to do so within 1 kilometer, or a little more than half a mile, from their home.
