Italians Rent Out Their Pets To Allow People To Break Coronavirus Curfew

Italians have found a new way to make money: to rent out their pets to people desperate to break the coronavirus curfew! 

Several regions in Italy were placed in quarantine earlier this month, in a desperate effort to contain the rapid spread of the deadly virus in the country, and now the isolated citizens are getting bored and more and more restless and desperate to get out of their home. 

Some opportunists are trying to cash in on this in the country, by offering their pets for rent to people who want to have a walk outside without breaking the law, according to the news channel SVT.

Pets can be rented for between 10 and 25 euros per hour, allowing the dog walkers to “legally” break the curfew, as it is allowed to walk your dog during the lockdown in Italy.
