Why Johnny Depp and Amber Heard two little Dogs were a threat to the Australia’s Biosecurity
Although the story happened some time ago, it has not lost its topicality. It’s a prominent reminder to anyone traveling with their pets to be aware of destination country laws. Many countries take their country’s biosecurity very seriously. They have introduced live animal import regulations to prevent certain diseases for their own life stock.
When Johnny Depp and Amber Heard took their two adorable dogs, Pistol and Boo, to Australia without declaring them, bypassing the live animal importation process, the two little puppies almost got euthanized.
Before that happened, Johnny Depp and Amber Heard were allowed to get them out of the country within 72 hours. They also made use of this and flew them home to America, which was very expensive.
Australia had no choice but to act otherwise. The safety of the animals in their own country is too important to make an exception for two celebrities.
Why was all this even noticed? It’s too stupid not to mention it. Johnny Depp and Amber Heard had given their puppies to a groomer and they immediately posted a photo of their celebrity clientele on the internet. This is how the authorities became aware of the case in the first place.
Please do not try to illegally smuggle your animals into other countries. You take the risk that they will be put to sleep there, and you may then pay for all costs in addition to the penalty.
