German customs authorities are saying that Justin Bieber’s monkey will not be removed from an animal shelter where it is staying, despite requests from the young singer that it be placed in a zoo.
Mally, a 17-week-old capuchin monkey, was seized by customs authorities March 28 when Bieber failed to produce the required papers after landing in Munich.
Customs spokesman Thomas Meister said that Mally will stay in the shelter until Bieber or someone with his power of attorney gets in touch with them directly.
Bieber has until May 17 to provide Mally’s paperwork.
“If by May 17 there is nothing, then he loses ownership of the animal and it becomes the property of the Federal Republic of Germany,” he said.
This makes me sad, who could do this to a pet?
