BERLIN (AP) – Justin Bieber didn’t move – so he loses his pet monkey. Officials in Munich say the capuchin monkey Bieber tried to bring into the country while on tour is now the property of the German government. The pet was seized when The Beeb couldn’t produce the proper documents at customs. He was given a deadline to send in the papers, but that time has come and gone. Bieber can appeal – he has six weeks to make his case. The monkey, named Mally, is being cared for at an animal shelter in Munich. The shelter has criticized Bieber for keeping such a young monkey as a pet. Experts also say capuchin monkeys are social, and need to be kept in groups, not alone. They are also billing Bieber for the thousands of dollars spent for Mally’s care.
