Justin Bieber's monkey Mally confiscated


When Justin Bieber arrived at Munich Airport last Thursday, the customs were amazed: the pop star, who is currently on a European tour, had his capuchin monkey Mally with him. However, he probably forgot the associated papers. Teen swarm Justin Bieber: monkey confiscated - Image: 2013 Twitter / malIythemonkey

Justin Bieber felt in Munich that the strict entry requirements for animals are not changed even for teenagers. Since he could not produce the important animal and species protection documents for his monkey Mally, the poor animal was seized without further ado. According to media reports, Mally is now sitting in the quarantine station of a Munich animal shelter and is waiting for Bieber to release her with the relevant certificates. According to a customs spokesman, the animal's health is good, but whether such a sensitive animal should be subjected to such stress remains to be seen.

Not appropriate: the keeping of a monkey as a pet

Not only touring with a capuchin monkey is questionable due to the hustle and bustle and the constant change of location. It is difficult to keep an intelligent and unusual animal like this in a normal household, but it is becoming more common, especially in the USA. So Justin Bieber should perhaps be a better role model for his fans and at least show that he really cares about the well-being of the monkey. By the way, Mally was a present for Bieber's 19th birthday.
