On Monday we reported the Justin Bieber, upon entering Germany via a private plane, lacked appropriate paperwork for his new pet capuchin monkey and therefore had to leave the animal in quarantine. According to People.com, Bieber flew into Germany on Thursday. Just about a week later, Bieber’s capuchin is still waiting for the pop star to return.

Considering his tour isn’t supposed to finish up until the end of April, we have to ask, just when is Bieber planning on coming back for the monkey? Today? Tomorrow? Another week? The end of the month?

People posted a picture of the capuchin as it waits in Munich in quarantine and interacts with a stuffed animal. But, one would think that getting the monkey out of a government run facility would be a top priority for the star. There has been no mention of the events on his twitter account or official statement from his PR team.

Perhaps this catastrophe will show the Bieber that he is in no position to adequately care for a primate. We are sure that any number of sanctuaries would be thrilled to take the capuchin out of harm’s way. And when I say harm, I mean out of Justin Bieber’s way.
