Baby singer had pet confiscated in Germany
Justin Bieber is searching for a new home for pet monkey Mally after having the pet taken off him in Germany.
The singer’s primate companion was seized by customs after Justin, 19, tried to bring him into the country without the correct paperwork.
And now he’s keen for Mally, who is being held in quarantine at an animal centre in Munich, to find a peaceful new home rather than rejoin him on tour.
It would be wonderful if Mally could be integrated with other capuchin monkeys,’ the centre’s boss Karl Heinz Joachim, 64, tells The Sun.
There are suitable places in England. A baby monkey was never going to be suited to going on a world tour – even if he is traveling by private jet.
He should be with other monkeys if he isn’t to have serious psychological problems.’
Justin’s manager Scooter Braun has asked the centre to recommend suitable zoos where the monkey can be re-homed.
Authorities have given a deadline of May 17 for Justin to either claim Mally or send a letter saying he no longer wants him.
The pet was given to the singer as a present for his 19th birthday.
