Johnny Depp’s Dogs Sentenced to Death by Australian Minister

The Agriculture Minister of Australia has threatened to euthanize Johnny Depp’s two dogs, who he says entered the country illegally.

Minister Barnaby Joyce said that Depp failed to declare his two Yorkshire terriers to customs authorities when he and his wife, Amber Heard, returned to Queensland by private jet last month.

From Sydney Morning Herald:

“It’s time that Pistol and Boo buggered off back to the United States,” he said. “He’s now got about 50 hours left to remove the dogs.┬áHe can put them on the same charter jet he flew out on and fly them back out of our nation.”

“We found out he snuck them in because we saw him taking them to a poodle groomer,” he added. “Now Mr Depp has to either take his dogs back to California or we’re going to have to euthanize them.”

The minimum quarantine period for animals entering Australia is 10 days but Mr Joyce said he would not offer the option of Depp’s dogs (because I assume he’s an a-hole).

This is animal cruelty! I am so upset at this Australian official now. There has to be another way.

Let Depp declare the dogs and be done with it. Don’t threaten them with death!

Johnny Depp returned to Australia on April 20 after flying back to the U.S. in March for surgery after an accident on the set of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.
