A woman in Canada has been fined by police after walking her boyfriend around on a leash in a bid to get around lockdown restrictions.
Countries across the world are once again plunging their citizens into lockdown in a bid to stem the spread of coronavirus.
But one woman thought she had found an ingenious way to side-step the rules and still see her boyfriend.
The loved-up girlfriend was so desperate to see her partner that she came up with a daring scheme to navigate restrictions.
In Quebec, Canada, there is currently a four-week-long curfew in place. Residents can’t leave their homes from 8pm until 5am.
There’s a few understandable exceptions, like essential workers and those who need to travel for work, as well as walking pets.
On Saturday night, a woman placed a leash on her partner and walked him around the streets.
Local newspaper La Tribune reports that she was fined after being stopped on King Street East in Sherbrooke, walking her partner on a leash.
They claim the woman told police she was just out “walking her dog”.
But the plot didn’t fly with cops, who slapped them with a fine.
Isabelle Gendron, of the Sherbrooke Police Department, said: “The couple did not collaborate with the police at all.
“Statements of violation of the municipal by-law were given to them. The lady affirmed that she would not pay the ticket and even that she would accumulate them.
“The amount of findings for recidivism can go up to $6,000 (£3,500).”
But some on social media celebrated the coupe’s audacious nature.
One person wrote: “This absolutely made my day.”
While another joked: “It’s creative.”
