Justin Bieber Asked to Pick Up Monkey
Justin Bieber’s European tour has been characterized by irresponsible behavior: being late to a concert, taking off his shirt in a Polish airport, letting Lil Twist party in his Calabasas home, and now bringing a monkey into Germany without the proper documentation.
For those not following the trials and tribulations of Bieber’s latest European outing, he flew into the Munich airport on March 28 with his latest pet, a 14-week-old capuchin monkey named Mally. At the time, the pet had to be placed in Quarantine, while the pop star started the German and Austrian leg of the tour.
There are a couple of reasons for the quarantine. First off, when the pop star arrived in Munich, he didn’t come with the proper health and species certificate needed to enter the country. The shelter taking care of Mally, as well, revealed the monkey is too young to be away from the mother.
Bieber, on the other hand, didn’t update his fans about Mally. After the Munich show, for instance, he just tweeted: "Munich was a good time. And loud. The bus is headed to Vienna now. U coming?"
Revealed at the end of the week, the Biebs now has four weeks to pick up his monkey. If Mally isn’t picked up over this time, the monkey will be kept at the shelter or moved to another location, while Bieber will face a fine. About this, the shelter told the press: "If he doesn't (present the papers), Mally will be taken to a good animal shelter that has experience rearing groups of young capuchin monkeys and can ensure disoriented Mally becomes a healthy little capuchin."
