Johnny Depp thought it was a good idea to bring his two dogs along for a planned trip to Australia aboard his private jet, that is until Australian authorities got wind of it. Now they are threatening to euthanize his beloved pets within 72 hours.
Depp thought he could circumvent a required 10 day quarantine mandated by strict Australia laws which govern the admittance of foreign dogs, but instead of keeping the pooches on the down low, the actor decided to get them groomed by a local groomer, who shared a snap of their handy work on social media, which in-turn, let the cat, um, dogs, out of the bag.
Depp and Heard flew into Queensland on a private jet in April, they were not subjected to the same passenger screening. The only the reason the dogs were discovered at all was because photos of them at a groomer emerged online. The two actors were given notice that they had 72 hours to arrange for their dogs’ return to the US or the government would put them down. Boo and Pistol will be held in quarantine until then.
Depp has been in Australia shooting Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.
This is a developing story.
