Germany tells Justin Bieber to pay up for his former pet monkey, Mally
Tuesday 30 July 2013
The authorities have posted a public notice urging Justin Bieber to contact them about an unpaid bill for his former pet monkey, Mally.
The Canadian pop singer failed to produce the necessary vaccination and import papers for the capuchin monkey when he arrived for a European tour in March. Mally became the property of the government in May when Bieber failed to claim his pet. It has been rehomed in a zoo in Lower Saxony.
Franz Boehmer of the Federal Agency for Nature Conservation says Bieber has a week to pay €1,130 (£980) for Mally's care – or customs officials "have ways of making him pay" next time he enters Germany.
