Depp may face jail time over dogs
26 May 2015 16:04
Johnny Depp may be facing jail time after failing to declare his two dogs to customs officials when he flew into Australia last month.
-
Depp and his wife Amber Heard brought the two dogs, Pistol and Boo, into Australia on a private plane and did not follow the correct quarantine procedures. The dogs' presence in the country was discovered when they were spotted at a pet pampering salon.
-
Minister for Agriculture Barnaby Joyce demanded that the dogs be returned to America by May 16 or they would face being put down. Depp obeyed the order but it now looks as though he could be facing a severe penalty following a Senate committee hearing in Canberra yesterday (May 25) at which senators questioned the department of agriculture for 40 minutes about the investigation.
-
Officials reportedly agreed that the matter is "very serious" and that jail time, or a fine of up to $250,000/€178,000, could come as a result.
-
Depp was travelling to Australia to film the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean sequel.
