Johnny Depp is in a spat with government officials in Australia over the screen actor’s two dogs, who he reportedly brought into the country without quarantining them for the required time period.
So now the dogs are being threatened with euthanasia if Depp does not take then back to the US.
Depp certainly carries his share of the blame for not addressing the requirements and therefore putting the dogs and others at risk. He should know better.
But Australia is a nation that allows greyhound racing and the government is still closing its eyes to the history of abuse and the current scandal over the use of live baiting in the so-called training of the dogs.
So Australia – if you really want to do the right thing for animals, show us some real steps. Announce tomorrow that due to the preponderance of evidence, greyhound racing has been immediately banned – forever.PACK MENTALITY BLOG: Compassion - teamed with Science and Logic
