According to police, the 24-year-old woman claimed she was abiding by the law, citing it was legal to walk pets after 8 pm.

The incident occurred in Canada's Quebec on Saturday night when the woman was caught walking her husband on a leash like a dog at 9 pm, an hour after coronavirus curfew was imposed. Instead, it was hooked to the woman's 40-year-old partner as the couple walked in Sherbrooke after 9pm Saturday, police tell the Montreal Gazette.

During that time, locals are only allowed out of their homes for limited reasons, such as going to hospital or walking their dog within 1km of their home. The excuse reportedly didn't convince the officials (apparently, men can be trained to use a toilet and don't require walks the same way that dogs do) and both the man and the woman were fined over $12,000 for breaking curfew.

The husband and wife were reportedly not cooperating with police, when they were stopped on the streets of Quebec, after the curfew.

Authorities fined a married couple in Quebec for breaking a curfew implemented due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The new curfew runs from 8 pm to 5 am, even as non-essential businesses remain shut and home gatherings prohibited as part of a "shock treatment" to save lives and the province's health network, Premier Legault said last Wednesday.

There have been almost 680,000 confirmed cases of Covid-19 in Canada since the start of the pandemic and some 17,250 deaths.

Quebec became the first province to enforce a curfew over the weekend to help curb the spread of COVID-19.
