Johnny Depp Flies Dogs Out of Australia

The Sydney Morning Herald is reporting the problems facing Johnny Depp and his wife Amber Heard over taking their pet dogs to Australia have ended with the dogs and heard flying back to Los Angeles. Depp is filming the fifth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise in Australia and came under fire when images of the two Yorkshire Terriers were uploaded to Instagram by Australian dog groomers according to Sam Tabar.

Australian Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce took up the case and threatened to have the dogs destroyed unless they left the country after they were not declared to customs officials when Depp arrived in Australia. It is now reported the two dogs have returned to Los Angeles with Heard on a private jet in a bid to resolve the issue, which could have resulted in the death of the animals had they remained in Australia. The filming of the latest installment of The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise has been marred with controversy after Depp sustained an injury that halted filming. The planned return of the Edward Scissorhands star to Australia was then delayed amid reports alleging he had failed to return on the scheduled flight from Los Angeles.
