Johnny Depp's Dogs Must Leave Australia Or Will Be Put To Death

(Radio.com) Johnny Depp's dogs are facing life or death in Australia after that country's government accused their actor owner of not properly quarantining them. Some are calling it the "War on Terrier" as the Aussie government gives Depp a simple choice, remove his two Yorkshire Terriers, Boo and Pistol, from the country by Saturday or they will be put down.

The actor is being accused of not declaring his two pups to custom officials when he arrived in Queensland, Australia on a private jet last month to film the latest installment of Pirates of the Caribbean. The two dogs were reportedly discovered after a dog groomer posted a photo of them on Facebook.

The Australian government, like many other countries, has strict quarantine laws for pets so that it hopefully "protect[s] people's health as well as animal and plant health."

According to the Australian Department of Agriculture's website, Depp's "illegally imported dogs" should have been quarantined for a minimum of 10 days on arrival, longer if it is seen as coming from a riskier country or it shows signs of illness. Read more here.
