International icon, Johnny Depp, found his pet dogs’ lives under threat by Australian Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce, after he brought them into the country during the filming of the latest installment of Pirates of the Caribbean saga.
Australian five-time motorcycle racing world champion, Mick Doohan, in whose mansion Depp is staying while filming on the Australia’s Gold Coast, warned that international film crews, like those involved with the filming of Disney’s newest installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean saga, ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’ will be less likely to come to Australia after the spectacle surrounding Depp’s dogs.
“I think Australia will struggle to get people out here if that’s the way they carry on,” said Doohan.
“He’s a humorous type of guy, I think he’s just disappointed about how it’s been relentless,” added Doohan about the incident.
Depp’s dog saga made international headlines when Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce threatened to have the terriers put down if they were not removed from the country after coming into the country on the Jack Sparrow actor’s private jet.
Australian laws are infamously strict about bringing animals and even plant products into the country. According to legislation, dogs entering from the United States have to spend 10 days in quarantine.
Pistol and Boo were quickly whisked back home amid intense media scrutiny.
