Depp Faces a Decade in Prison for Bringing Dogs to Australia Illegally

Depp Faces a Decade in Prison for Bringing Dogs to Australia Illegally

At a Senate hearing in Canberra it could be heard that actor Johnny Depp could be imprisoned for ten years because he brought his dogs, Pistol and Boo, to Australia without a formal consent. He could also pay a fine summing up to AUS $ 340,000 because he flew in his Yorkshire terriers into Australia. This scenario is likely in the event of the case being taken to court. 

The pilot who brought them into the country is also partially responsible for the crime and could spend as much as two years in prison. The pet smuggling took place last month and the event angered Australian agricultural minister Barnaby Joyce who said he would order for the dogs to be put down if they are not out of the country in the next 50 hours. His statement at the time will never be forgotten: “It is time that Pistol and Boo buggered off to the United States.” The truth about the dogs’ whereabouts became apparent when they were brought to a groomer. 

Depp followed the order at once and had the dogs flown back to the U.S. The officials and the public did not forget about the case which was characterized as “very serious.” Rumors indicating that Depp left Australia to spend more time with his Yorkshire terriers are not true.
