Actor, Johnny Depp’s dogs sentenced to death in Australia

Published

on

Johnnie Depp’s dogs, Boo and Pistol are on the run for their dear lives, or their celebrity owner is helping them run for their young lives as he expressly flies or steals them out of Australia to prevent them being put down by the Australian authority.

The Minister of Agriculture in Australia threatened to euthanize Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s pups because they did not abide by Australian law by declaring their dogs on touch down in Oz.

In Australia, all dogs brought into the country are duly quarantined for health reason.

But Depp is not allowing that happen, he is flying out his pups in a private jet back to US. That doesn’t mean the actor is in the clear.

The Minister says Depp is likely to pay a hefty fine for breaking the law in the first place because dog smuggling is punishable by up to 10 years imprisonment.

They are really not cutting him any slack because of his celebrity status.
