Justin Bieber's monkey finds a new home in German wildlife park
Justin Bieber seems to have gotten his wish for his former monkey Mally. After being confiscated from the pop star in Munich Airport and becoming property of Germany, the pet has found a forever home in a German wildlife park.
Reuters reports that Mally is currently in quarantine at Serengeti Park in northern Germany, but will be permanently settled in with other white-faced capuchin monkeys in a few weeks. So far he seems to be doing just fine in his new home, the wildlife park's head Fabrizio Sepe says.
"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," Sepe tells Reuters.
Bieber had previously said he would be happy if Mally was given to a zoo in Germany. Mally was living in an animal shelter after Bieber failed to provide customs officers the proper paperwork for the monkey and had to leave the pet behind. Sepe says he has not yet heard from Bieber, but would be happy to speak to the pop star about Mally's state.
