It turns out that men really are not dogs.
A married couple in Quebec apparently decided to test a loophole they thought they discovered in the local coronavirus rules. Unfortunately for them, the authorities did not agree that husbands can be considered “pets”.
Authorities saw the wife leading her husband around on a leash last Saturday around 6 p.m. 21 in an attempt to cut a curfew implemented due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In Quebec, residents are allowed to walk dogs after the curfew hours come into force, provided they stay close to their homes, reports the BBC.

The woman was apparently trying to argue that she was walking with her dog when authorities approached her. The apology allegedly did not persuade officials (apparently men can be trained to use a toilet and do not require walks in the same way that dogs do), and both the man and the woman were fined $ 12,000 for breaking the curfew.
Officials reportedly told a local media outlet that the couple did not cooperate with police.
The woman has also stated that she does not intend to pay the fine, reports Insider.
