Justin Bieber Slammed For ‘Monstrous’ Treatment of Pet Baby Monkey

Proof today, were it needed, that Justin Bieber is an ignorant little prick. The 19-year-old's incarcerated pet monkey is now languishing in an animal shelter in Munich after being seized at German customs at the weekend because the pop star flew it into Germany without the correct paperwork. Mally has been confirmed as a 14-week-old Capuchin monkey that is traumatised after being separated from its mother - which should not happen until it is at least a year old and only then if it goes into a family type unit comprised of at least four or five of its own kind. Austrian vet Kurt Grabenwoeger has slammed the tween idol and says that forcing a baby monkey to endure the stress of flying around the world was “monstrous”. He said: “These monkeys not only need to be with their mothers for at least a year, but they should also be surrounded by their family group. They are living creatures — not celebrity accessories like a handbag. “Imagine a human baby sent off on a world tour at ten weeks — would anyone allow that?" The boss of the Munich shelter where the monkey is now staying - Karl Joachim - added yesterday that Mally is 'clearly traumatised' and won't eat without a cuddly toy which the confused animal is using as a substitute for its mother: “He was snatched from his mother when he was around nine weeks old. "That is much too early," the 64-year-old said. "He is clearly traumatised at being taken away from his family," he added.  "We could not get him to eat until we gave him the cuddly toy he was clinging to when he was delivered to us. This obviously acts as a kind of surrogate parent. “He keeps calling a lot for company — without his toy he won’t eat at all.” This is heartbreakingly awful. The monkey was given to Bieber as a birthday gift and I shudder to think where it was purchased from because it can't have been a legal breeder if they'd allow it to be potentially scarred for life after being ripped from its mother's back. These are the same people who often remove the Capuchin's teeth so owners don't get bitten- although it's a procedure that's generally accepted as so cruel that most vets refuse to perform it. Justin and his people are yet to contact the centre to enquire about the animal's well-being, confirming that he saw it like a plaything that cemented his status as the next Michael Jackson, nothing more. If there's one thing that makes me seethe with anger it's people treating wild animals like toys - this is yet another example of Justin's wilful ignorance, immaturity and stupidity. It's also very telling about the adults that form his entourage and the kind of morals they have that they'd let him drag an already- traumatised baby around the world and submit it to more stress to keep their Superstar charge happy. Did not one person research how to look after a Capuchin before racing out and buying one? Just the very lightest of internet searches would help convince anyone with a brain that owning them as pets at home is cruel and I doubt Bieber has the required permit to legally own one in California. It's cruel and disgusting and I hope that Bieber loses fans over this. Furthermore, I actually think being seized by customs - as upsetting for the animal as it may be now- is going to be the best thing that ever happened to Mally. Let's hope that he never gets it into his head to adopt a child.

    WOW Mr Grabenwoeger is the sort of vet I would want for my beloved pets because HE KICKS ASS!!! Cannot stand people who don’t seem to understand the basic fact that animals are living creatures and not damned toys.

  2. Kitty says:

    I can’t believe that picture of the monkey drinking Pepsi either – that can’t be good for his little body. Let’s hope he gets rehomed into a family group and forgets his traumatic past

    Thank you, thank you, Jen.

      I think it was Anais Nin who said without shame we’d be lethal because we’d never learn anything. Biebs needs a healthy dose of self-doubt and inner questioning, maybe the pot will do that to him?

    Monstrous? Really?

    • Boadaciousbetty says:

      Undoubtedly, yes. When it comes to animals snatched from the wild, we don’t have to physically abuse the animal to be branded monstrous. Simply, the practice is monstrous (as is the feeding of coke to a baby which needs only its mothers’ milk).

      I’m so afraid that Bieber’s legion of young fans will see his new toy and think “I need me one of these”, and years of education will be erased by one silly, spoiled boy, who probably knows no better. But the real grown-ups around him do.

      To save us from our ignorance the law should be changed in every single country to make the owning of wild animals illegal. End of rant (but it makes me BLOODY LIVID!).

    Yes monstrous. The little marks indicate that this is a quote from the vet. If you are disinclined to believe vetenary science, there’s always google as suggested in the article.

    Interesting that Beiber gets called out for treating his monkey the same way Pitt and Jolie treat their human children without repercussion. Just saying.

    Pulling three-year-old Pax away from the environment he has known for three years, renaming him, and dragging him, screaming in terror, onto an airplane with total strangers, who don’t speak a word of his language, after posing with him relentlessly and inappropriately for the tabs for a day? No problem. But don’t you dare go treating a little monkey like that.

    I don’t get it.
