Man fined for taking his GOLDFISH out for a walk!
Police in Spain were left speechless after stopping a man who was taking his GOLDFISH for a walk despite the coronavirus lockdown!
Over the last few weeks, the country’s State
of Emergency has seen lots of curfew dodgers, including a Spanish resident out
walking his goat, another who had a battery-operated toy dog on a lead and a
man who took his chicken out for a stroll! Several people have also dressed up

The bizarre incident took place in La Rioja
where, like the rest of Spain, residents can only go out for one of a number of

for an hour a day so their children can go for a walk or play.

a week where deaths from coronavirus in Spain surpassed the 23,000 mark.
