Justin Bieber has asked German authorities to find a new home for his pet monkey Mally after it was confiscated by officials in March, according to reports.
The 19-year-old singer's representatives contacted an animal clinic in Munich this week asking for a “safe and sheltered place, or a zoo” to be found for his pet, the Sun said.
A spokesman for the clinic is quoted as saying: "We have to discuss now the way forward with customs officials and other responsible departments".
Bieber has been given a deadline of May 17 to either claim Mally or send a letter saying he no longer wants him.
Franz Böhmer of the Bonn Federal Office for Nature Conservation said: "So far no papers for the monkey of Justin Bieber have been submitted.
"If he submits a written disclaimer, we can accommodate Mally in a welfare family group in a zoo.”
