Two little dogsĀ  belonging to Johnny Depp could get death sentences if they are not taken out of Australia on or before Saturday, May 16 and here's the reason why.

According to the Australian Minister if Agriculture, Barnaby Joyce, the actor and his wife, Amber Heard have failed to respect the country's enormous problem with wild animals.

The Minister tells TMZ on May 14 that wild dogs kill up to 40 sheep per night and that's why they have very strict policies on foreign dogs smuggled claiming to have home quarantine.

Despite Depp's pups seeming tamed and unharmed, Joyce insists size doesn't matter. Adding that it's her job to make sure ALL dogs brought into Australia are free of diseases so other pooches won't be infected just by strolling on the streets.

We earlier reported that Depp and Amber smuggled their dogs - Boo and Pistol into the country without proper quarantine.

The government is now ordering the dogs out by Saturday else face a death sentence.
