Actress Amber Heard, who is married to Pirates of the Carribean star Johnny Depp, has taken a dig at Australian government officials over their recent threats to kill the celebrity couple's two dogs.
Australian Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce said in May that terriers Pistol and Boo had to leave the country or be euthanised after it was revealed the dogs had entered Australia without going through proper quarantine procedures.
Less than 48 hours after Joyce's unexpected threat, Pistol and Boo fled Australia on a private jet.
Later, an Australian senate committee found that Depp may be liable for a $340,000 fine or up to ten years in jail for illegally bringing his dogs into the country.
In an interview on breakfast TV show Sunrise promoting her latest film, Magic Mike XXL, Heard said she would avoid visiting Australia in the future.
"I have a feeling we're going to avoid the land down under from now on, just as much as we can, thanks to certain politicians there," she said.
"I don't know, I guess everyone tries to go for their fifteen minutes, including some government officials."
Heard also said Pistol was with her that day and "doing just fine".
Meanwhile, Barnaby Joyce has set his sights on a dog population with no known celebrity ties.
