Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber is extremely popular among many teens and young girls for the music that he make. One group that apparently does not like Mr. Bieber is animal rights organization North American Primate Sanctuary Alliance. This is due to the recent statements by the pop singer that he plans to adopt another primate in the near future.

News of Bieber wanting to adopt another primate was reported by TMZ, with the singer reportedly saying that ?monkeys are awesome? and that he wants to get another one. He said that he plans to get another one because he has actually owned a monkey in the past. In 2013, he took his monkey with him to Germany but customs officials in the country decided to confiscate the primate when they assessed that Bieber did not have the proper documentation for the animal.

Bieber has said that when he gets another pet monkey, he will ?make sure I got a house and it stays in the f***ing house?. He likewise continued saying that ?I’m not gonna bring him to Germany.”

The Daily Mail reported that the North American Primate Sanctuary Alliance was not pleased with the news that the popular celebrity plans on getting another pet monkey. According to them, it “will prove dangerous to both you and your monkey, as well as irresponsible when it comes to your public following.” The animal rights organization further pleaded for Bieber to ?”Please do not repeat this foolish endeavor.”

Celebrities and exotic animals are not totally uncommon, Nicholas cage owns a pet octopus and Kristen Stewart even has a pet wolf. But the problem cited by NAPSA is that monkeys can carry disease and it can likewise become hostile when owners try to domesticate it.

It remains to be seen if the pleas of NAPSA will have any effect on Bieber?s decision. If the young singer does decide to move forward with his plan, he can expect plenty of animal rights groups to continue to have him on their hate list.
