They’re stateless dogs.” Depp and his wife Amber Heard are preparing to leave the Gold Coast, where Depp is filming the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean movie, on Friday night.

They have not spoken publicly to the media to explain whether they had intentionally deceived authorities, or whether an error was made in the paperwork. The agriculture minister did not step back from the threat to put the dogs down, saying Australia’s strict biosecurity laws were in place to protect local flora and fauna. “Quite obviously, my preference is not to have to destroy these two dogs.

But if we get caught in a corner, that is what we do, and we are not going to make an exemption for Mr Depp or anybody else,” Joyce said. “Don’t take this as a joke.
