Teen singer left pet animal in Germany after it was seized by officials

Justin Bieber has until midnight (May 17) tonight to save his pet monkey Mally from customs.

Bieber is reported to have abandoned his pet monkey after it was seized by customs officials in Germany in March. Mally the monkey is being kept in quarantine by customs on the German border after the teen pop star attempted to get the animal into the country without the correct legal documentation.

According to the Evening Standard, a spokesman for the Munich animal clinic where Mally is currently residing, claimed the singer’s management team in New York contacted them this week, asking them to find a “safe and sheltered place, or a zoo” for him. “We have to discuss now the way forward with customs officials and other responsible departments,” he added.

Bieber has been given a deadline of midnight tonight by German authorities to either claim the monkey and pay a significant sum of money towards his upkeep, or to put in writing that he doesn’t want him anymore. “So far no papers for the monkey of Justin Bieber have been submitted,” Franz Böhmer, of the Bonn Federal Office for Nature Conservation said. “If he submits a written disclaimer, we can accommodate Mally in a welfare family group in a zoo.”

Bieber was reportedly was given the monkey last month as a 19th birthday present from music producer Jamal ‘Mally Mal’ Rashid.
