The pair were found to have breached a curfew introduced in Quebec after the strange stunt was spotted by police at 9pm on Sunday (10.01.21).

The curfew is imposed from 8pm to 5am but the rules outline that citizens can walk their dogs within a kilometre of their home within that time as the couple frivolously claimed that they were following the guidelines.

Isabelle Gendron of Sherbrooke Police told La Tribune newspaper: "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."
