This BTN story discussed the issues that Johnny Depp has lately been having lately with his two dogs. Johnny Depp has taken his two dogs illegally into Australia. This because he did not put them in quarantine. Quarantine is when something is kept in an area where they can be checked. This is something that Pistol and Boo have forgotten to do. Johnny Depp got caught out with the agricultural minister Barnaby Joyce.
The reason why people are concerned about this matter is because they could have a disease which could wipe out a type of plant or animal. This is called Bio Security. When an animal goes through quarantine they could be there for 10-30 days. If an animal goes through quarantine in goes through three steps first they will put a microchip in the animal, next they will vaccinate them, after that they will check for parasites then they will check for diseases.
But I still wonder if these animals didn’t go through quarantine could they harm Australia?
