Johnny Depp’s pampered pooches highlight the growing inequalities in society — 9 Comments

  1. I am 48 yrs old i to was having pommerin baby she died at the age of 13 completed i feel very very bad for animals i love them i need them to take care of them but i am helpless but i do pray for them me and my family

  2. Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are highly arrogant to think they are above the law. It is widely known that Australia has very strict biosecurity laws for very good reasons. Depp and Heard have the money and staff to comply with pet imporatation requirements but they chose not to. Do those dogs even have valid passports for entry into any country?

    Hats off to Australian Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce who said it was time the dogs ‘buggered off back to the US’. I think the authorities were very fair in allowing them 50 hours to remove both dogs from Australia otherwise they would be euthanised.

    • Johnny Depp and his partner are the only ones wrong here not the two innocent dogs whose lives were threatened by animal activist hater Barnaby Joyce.He never has anything good to say about animals or the people who help and support the animals.In fact he couldn’t wait to lift the ban on exporting Australian livestock and send the poor animals to a slow and very cruel death.It has been proven the animals exported usually die a horrible death but he could not care less.
      He labelled the animal supporters as ‘a few idiots out there’,well over one million ‘idiots’signed the petition so he was very wrong there.As far as I’m concerned he’s the idiot and rules are rules but Johnny Depp and his wife should have to pay the price for not obeying the rules not the innocent animals.Barnaby Joyce is the one who should bugger off.

      • I think that Joyce represents the voice of the Aussie government in respect of companion animals especially domestic cats and also feral cats. They don’t like them. I agree that these dogs are at the mercy of warring humans. Depp flew them back in a private jet. I believe the dogs were accepted back to California. Shame about the whole thing.

      • I agree it’s not the dogs’ fault, but if the Australian authorities allowed Depp to buy his way out of this one, it would be just another example of one law for the rich. If Depp and his wife cared so much for their dogs they would never have put them at risk in the first place.

        I don’t honestly believe there was ever any real threat the dogs would be euthanised, but the story has raised awareness about the strict entry rules for Australia.

  3. People of wealth and privilege will always be able to get away with bending the rules. Depp obviously wants his dogs to be with him, rather than leave them with a caretaker. But sometimes, once in a great while, some authorities can’t be bought.

    Having a private jet makes many things possible that aren’t, on a commercial jet.

  4. My favourite quote from the novel “Animal Farm, “SOME ANIMALS ARE MORE EQUAL”!The same applies to the “Human world” where ,”Some humans are more equal”.Thats the way this World functions practically.I feel sorry for the numerous pets that are daily euthanized in “First World Country’s” or left abandoned on streets in developing Country’s.

    • Nice observation, Rudolph. It is the way the way the world functions and it makes a mess of the world.

      Depp apparently is flying back to the US with his dogs today! Not sure if this will happen because he has filming commitments in Australia.
