Johnny Depp and Amber Heard Apologize for Dog Smuggling
Dog smuggling sounds pretty bad…but it wasn’t AS bad as it sounds.
Amber Heard did not declare her pups when the couple was heading to Australia. There is a reason that animals need to be declared and cleared and that is because the ecosystems are much different.
Of course, if it were you or I that made the mistake, I do feel as though we would suffer bigger consequences.
That said, Heard and Depp did feel bad and are paying the price…$1000 AND a public apology.
Although, some are commenting about the serious tone of the video…the Australian government is hoping this will serve as a reminder to many visitors that biosecurity is a huge deal.
