The ordeal of Mally, the 6-month-old pet monkey Justin Bieber abandoned in Germany, is finally coming to a happy end.
Thursday marks the day that Mally will be entering his new home – dubbed ‘Mally-bu’ – in a German zoo.
The young capuchin monkey was left in Munich three months ago, after being confiscated by authorities when Bieber flew him into the country without papers. But today he is free to roam in his huge enclosure at the Serengeti Wildlife Park in Hodenhagen, in Northern Germany.
He had spent 25 days in a mandatory quarantine after arriving at the zoo, chosen by German authorities, and now zookeeper Jenny, who has been with him everyday, has moved him to his final home, alongside his favorite cuddly toy.
Having spent most of his life around humans, he will first be allowed time to get used to his surroundings before the members of his new family – seven white-headed capuchins – are very carefully introduced to live with him. The new monkey enclosure consists of an island with trees, a circular water pit and a house for the whole family.
Awww, that’s sweet!
