Bieber asked not to get another monkey

LOS ANGELES: Canadian pop sensation Justin Bieber has been urged by the North American Primate Sanctuary Alliance (NAPSA) to not to get another monkey as a pet.

The Sorry hitmaker, 21, had capuchin monkey OG Mally as his pet, but the animal was taken off him by officials when he travelled to Germany in March 2013 and put into quarantine.

NAPSA has issued a statement urging Bieber to turn his attention to a different pet as he cannot

provide the correct care the animal needs to live, reported Vanity Fare magazine.

“Please do not repeat this foolish endeavour. It is simply not possible to fulfil the unique needs of your monkey within a private home... It will prove dangerous to both you and your monkey, as well as irresponsible when it comes to your public following,” read the statement.

When OG Mally was seized from him, Bieber said, “Everyone told me not to bring the monkey. Everybody told me not to bring the monkey. I was like, ‘It’s gonna be fine, guys!’ It was the farthest thing from fine.”
