Being Justin Bieber’s pet monkey is really not as easy and wonderful as it might seem. Last week his tiny baby monkey Mally was seized by German customs, since Justin flew him in without proper paperwork. Justin has continued his world tour – but Mally is still caged at the animal welfare.
Now vets speak up, since the baby monkey is only 14 weeks old, and they fear he might get traumatized. ““These monkeys not only need to be with their mothers for at least a year, but they should also be surrounded by their family group. They are living creatures — not celebrity accessories like a handbag”, one vet says to The Sun. “Imagine a human baby sent off on a world tour at ten weeks — would anyone allow that?”, he continued.
Mally will be forced to stay at the shelter until Justin Bieber gets a health certificate that confirms Mally is free from diseases.
