Justin Bieber's abandoned monkey moves to German wildlife park

BERLIN (Reuters) - A pet monkey that had belonged to Justin Bieber has moved into a German wildlife park after the teenage popstar failed to provide the necessary paperwork to release it from customs.

"Mally", a 23-week-old capuchin monkey, was confiscated by authorities at Munich airport in March while the Canadian singer was on tour. The pet has since become German national property because Bieber did not provide health and species protection certificates.

Mally, who had been living in an animal shelter, has now moved to Serengeti Park in Hodenhagen, northern Germany, where he will remain in quarantine for a few more weeks before permanently settling with other white-faced capuchin monkeys.

"He will go into our capuchin monkey enclosure where there is a lovely island that is 40 meters long and 20 meters wide. It has lots of trees so it will be a bit of a game to try and recognize him," said Fabrizio Sepe, head of the wildlife park.
