There's no doubt Justin Bieber loves to show off hanging out with exotic animals on Instagram — a hobby that has landed him in some pretty hot water!

You may recall back in April when the singer posed alongside a chained Bengal tiger at his father's engagement party (above), and then again in a picture posted a month later with a lion cub — and these are just two of the times in Toronto alone.

Well turns out the 22-year-old received a formal complaint from Toronto Animal Services back at the beginning of June stating that both of these instances violated a municipal code that bans the "keeping" of wild animals such as lions, tigers, and bears cougars in the city.

The notice of violation and request for compliance in the future, dated June 3, 2016, was obtained Thursday by PETA and can be viewed (below)!

Mr. Bieber… Ha!

The Hollywood Reporter reached out to the animal rights organization for comment, to which spokesperson Moira Colley emphasized the wrongfulness in posing for selfies with wild animals:

"It is clear Justin has a heart for animals and, like most people, just isn't aware of what happens behind the scenes."

We just hope the Biebs takes this seriously!
