The 'As Long As You Love Me' singer is said to be looking or a zoo to house his unfortunate pet.

Justin Bieber is reportedly set to give up his pet monkey Mally after the animal was seized by customs in Germany last month.

The 'Boyfriend' singer tried to take the pet, who was given to him for his 19th birthday, into Germany on his world tour, but the capuchin monkey was taken into quarantine after Justin failed to provide appears for the animal's travel.

Fresh reports indicate Justin's team, notably his manager Scooter Braun, has now been in touch with the Munich Center animal shelter to see about finding a new home for Mally.

According to the Daily Mail, Scooter contacted shelter boss Karl Heinz Joachim in a series of emails this week, asking for suggestions of a "safe and sheltered place, or a zoo" where the monkey could remain.

The 'As Long As You Love Me' singer now has a deadline of 17th May to either claim or disown the monkey, before it falls under the ownership of the country's government.
