Justin Bieber’s monkey still stranded in German shelter

Justin Bieber’s monkey remains in protective custody, four weeks after it was seized by German customs officials because the pop star didn’t bring the proper paperwork with them to Munich.

And the Associated Press reports there’s some indication that Bieber has come to terms with the separation: The Munich Animal Protection League said it has received emails from his management team asking about the possibility of placing the pet, “Mally,” in a German zoo.

Not that simple: A customs rep told AP that they need to hear from Bieber or his lawyers by May 17 or “he loses ownership of the animal and it becomes the property of the Federal Republic of Germany.”

We’ve said it before: Michael Jackson would never have let this happen to Bubbles.
