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.
Customs spokesman Thomas Meister says the pop singer has time until Friday midnight, to claim the monkey seized by authorities on 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 are yet to receive a formal request for that from the Canadian pop star or an authorized representative.
