Johnny Depp‘s dogs, Boo and Pistol, could face a death sentence if they aren’t taken back to the United States from Australia.
Australia’s agriculture minister Barnaby Joyce issued a statement telling the 51-year-old actor his dogs need to “bugger off” ASAP or face consequences.
“I personally as a minister don’t have Mr. Depp‘s phone number, nor does he have mine,” he told the BBC. “But my department is informed they are organizing for the dogs to be sent back to the United States. I’d say that is the wisest move.”
“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. It’s time that Pistol and Boo buggered off back to the United States,” he continued. “The dogs have been ordered into quarantine and the owners have been advised the dogs must be exported within 72 hours.”
The dogs were discovered in the country by a grooming website. Dogs are required to be quarantined a minimum of 10 days after arriving in the country to prevent spread of possible disease. Mr. Joyce said if the dogs are not taken out of the country, they will be put down.
