Honestly, this is just so sad and unfortunate.
Especially with how easily preventable this whole debacle could have been!
After being foolish enough to try to bring his pet Capuchin monkey, OG Mally, into Germany two months ago without the proper paperwork, Justin Bieber left the poor little guy there…and had until midnight yesterday to re-claim him before he became the country's property!
Now, the deadline has come and gone, Bieber has made absolutely zero effort to take responsibility for his own pet, so sadly, it now seems that Mally will be transferred to a zoo or animal sanctuary!
However, we doubt that this is where this story ends, as we reported that regardless of Biebs' decision to leave Mally in the care of perfect strangers in a foreign country, German officials are adamant that they be paid back all the thousands of Euros they spent on his behalf providing for the animal!
And we don't blame them!
A monkey is NOT a cute accessory that can be thrown away!
He's a living, BREATHING animal that has no idea what is going on, and we're just very sad to see how poorly and carelessly this situation has been handled by Bieber and his team.
We sincerely hope that little OG Mally is happy and cared for in his new home, wherever that may be.
