Germans want Bieber to pay monkey's bill

  • Print

BERLIN -- German officials say Justin Bieber will have to pay the bill for his monkey's two-month stay at a Munich animal shelter.

A spokesman for Munich's customs office says the cost of care, food and vet visits for capuchin monkey Mally is several thousand euros (dollars).

Customs spokesman Thomas Meister says Bieber has until midnight Friday to claim the monkey seized by authorities March 28 when the singer failed to produce its papers after landing in Munich on tour.

The shelter says his management company has asked that the 20-week-old monkey be placed in a zoo.

But customs has yet to receive a formal request for that from Bieber or an authorized representative.
