Pup-roar: Depp's dogs to flee Australia amid death threat

Posted:
SYDNEY (AP) -- Johnny Depp's dogs Pistol and Boo are preparing to flee Australia for the United States after the country's agriculture minister angrily accused the Hollywood actor of sneaking the pups into the country.

Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce said Friday that he was told the Yorkshire terriers were preparing to return to the U.S. aboard a private jet. The government told the actor he had until Saturday to get his dogs out of the country or they would be euthanized.

The canine chaos started when Joyce accused Depp of smuggling the dogs aboard his private jet when he returned to Australia on April 21 to resume filming of the fifth installment in the "Pirates of the Caribbean" series.
