Johnny Depp could face ten years in prison for smuggling his mutts into the country illegally.

I saw that... I wonder how much it has to do with being accustomed to being held in awe?

When ranked among the world events that might capture my attention, and might be something I might actually care about.... this one isn't even the tiniest blip on my radar screen.

Pless, you some kinda Depp 'fanboi'? :)

I suspect Australia is a bit sensitive about introduced species. OTOH, I would have known that ahead of time...

Particularly sensitive about unquarantined animals that could feasibly, if unlikely, carry rabies and other diseases into a country that is free of them. Of course, we could export funnel web spiders and brown snakes in exchange for rabies if that works for Johnny Depp :)

He's a very talented actor, but an odd duck. I guess he needed a reality check.

He should be in trouble, you or I would be. Bringing animals in to any country is serious. Also, it's question #8 on the Incoming Passenger Card..."serious consequences" if you give false or incorrect information.

I'm guessing Mr Depp won't do any hard time. He could pay the maximum fine of $340K and not even miss the cash.

When it comes to biosecurity, New Zealand makes the Aussies look loosey-goosey.

Well screw it they did not take care of the last ones they had.

Maybe you should have notified your intentions - sent a note by passenger pigeon - oh, wait....

I have to sort out export of pets to Australia. It's understandable and responsible on their part but it does involve more work than going anywhere else, a consequence to their biological isolation perhaps.

From the UK at least, beyond the normal vaccinations, rabies and microchipping, animals have to be blood tested to prove they are not carrying certain infectious diseases. A recent normal pets vaccination (containing leptospirosis for example) will push the antibody level into the red and a fail, requiring a second test to prove the antibody level is not rising, to eliminate the chance of an acute infection. They also have to be medically inspected for fitness to travel and given external and internal anti parasitic treatments at the correct timing. All signed and stamped in triplicate, for transport trough a scheduled airline, the flight etc is on the governement documentation, you cant just turn up, into the two quarantine kennels in Australia which has to be pre booked in advance to make sure they have a room. No kennel space, no import. I understand you can visit the dogs in the kennels daily. From the Uk it's about 1500 for the flight company and with all the testing etc probably a 2k per pet to get them to Australia and then the kennel fees ontop, which are usually not cheap. Everything is double checked by the Austarlian import officials, we know it's got to be perfect, otherwise it's trouble. They're right on the ball with it.

This kind'a doesn't compare to $20/day for pet sitters.
