An Italian woman who took her turtle out for a walk has been fined 400 euros ($500).

She was fined by Italian Police for breaking strict coronavirus confinement rules.

People are allowed to take their dogs for a walk in Italy. But this latest move suggests that turtles dont have the same rules as dogs.

The Roman police said, “the 60-year-old woman was caught outside her home without a justifiable reason” and fined.

Italian authorities reported issuing a record 16,545 fines on Easter Monday followed by another 13,756 fines on Sunday.

  1. woah, the turtle needs their walks too. But if she was out for no reason precautions needed to be taken.

  2. Your allowed to take dogs for walks so shouldn’t turtles have the same rights as dogs?
