Johnny Depp Has Only A Matter Of Hours To Save His Dogs From Death (And No, This Is Not A Film Plot)
The actor has been warned it's time for Boo and Pistol to "bugger off"...
Johnny Depp has been given an ultimatum when it comes to his two pet dogs by the Australian Department of Agriculture.
According to The Mirror, the actor has been warned that he must remove his pet pooches by Saturday (May 15) or they will be put down.
Depp - who is currently shooting the latest Pirates of the Caribbean flick Down Under - and his wife Amber Heard have been accused of breaking import laws by not declaring Yorkshire Terriers Boo and Pistol to customs when they flew in from California last month.
Anyone (yep, that includes A-list actors) bringing dogs into the country must have them quarantined for a minimum of 10 days after arrival to protect against the spread of disease.
Australian Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce explained: “Mr Depp has to either take his dogs back to California or we are going to have to euthanise them.
"He's now got about 50 hours left to remove the dogs. He can put them on the same charter jet he flew in on and fly back out of our nation."
Joyce went on to add that Depp’s superstar status does not exempt him from Australia’s strict quarantine laws, adding to 612 ABC Brisbane: "There is a process if you want to bring animals: you get the permits, they go into quarantine and then you can have them.
"If we start letting movie stars even though they've been the sexiest man alive twice to come into our nation, then why don't we just break the laws for everybody?”
He concluded: “It's time that Pistol and Boo buggered off back to the United States."
Save them Johnny!!!
