The Bieber/monkey saga has been going on for quite some time now. Ever since the pop star was gifted a capuchin monkey, brought him on his private plane to Germany without paperwork, and left him for weeks at a Munich animal shelter. Responsible, huh?
Now, Justin Bieber might be showing some maturity and realizing that an on-the-go star such as himself, cannot possibly provide a good home for an animal who should never be kept as a pet to begin with.
The Daily Mail is reporting that Bieber’s people have been in touch with German authorities asking if they would be able to find the primate a “safe and sheltered place, or a zoo”. They wrote in an email, “Our team is looking into the idea of placing Mally at a zoo in Germany. Would you happen to have any recommendations for places that Mally would be safe and thrive? Again, we are very concerned that Mally is safe and placed in the best possible residence.” We’ve got to hope that where ever the little guy ends up, it’s not in a private home and instead is with others of his own kind at a sanctuary.
Hopefully, Bieber’s friend and record producer, Mally Mall, learned his lesson about gifting animals to busy pop stars. And more importantly, exotic animals that should never be pets for anyone.
