Famed actor Johnny Depp has been contacted by the Australian government concerning his two Yorkies, Pistol and Boo, who are not allowed on the island country. In an effort to stop the spread of diseases like rabies, the Austrailian government requires permits for any animals coming into the country as well as a 10-day quarantine as part of their biosecurity laws. He either must remove them from the country or euthanize them.
Depp traveled to Australia to film Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. He has until Saturday to decide whether to fly them home or risk having them confiscated and killed. This unfolding drama has exploded on social media, and the world awaits his decision.
