Canadian police have fined a woman whose dogged determination to dodge a strict new curfew saw her taking a man for a walk – on a leash.

Quebec province has imposed an 8:00 pm curfew in a bid to slow the spread of the coronavirus, but residents are allowed to take dogs for walks close to home.

Police in Sherbrooke, about 150 kilometers east of Montreal, on Saturday stopped a woman who was walking with a man on a leash, AFP reported.

When they confronted her, she replied with a straight face “that she was walking her dog.”

Sherbrooke police spokeswoman said police believed the woman was “testing us.”

The woman was fined $1,175, but refused to accept limits on her freedom, telling police she would be back out on the streets every night during the lockdown.
