1. Meet Justin Bieber’s 14-week-old capuchin monkey, “OG Mally.”
8. Bieber departed Los Angeles for Munich on Wednesday night to continue the European lag of his “Believe” tour. The singer brought his new pet OG Mally with him on the private jet to Germany.
#munich— Justin Bieber
9. Bieber and crew landed at Franz Josef Strauss Airport in Munich on Thursday morning and were detained by German customs when officials discovered the baby monkey aboard the jet.
11. The singer was forced to leave the animal in quarantine and departed the airport to perform a sold-out show in Munich’s Olympiahalle.
12. After the concert, Bieber tweeted that he was leaving Munich for Vienna, Austria. He did not mention his quarantined baby monkey.
Munich was a good time. And loud. The bus is headed to Vienna now. U coming?— Justin Bieber
13. When Bieber failed to produce his pet’s paperwork in a timely manner, German authorities transferred OG Mally from a customs holding pen to an animal shelter.
16. The shelter where OG Mally is being held posted on its website that the animal is getting “a well-deserved rest” and chastised Bieber for prematurely separating the baby monkey from its mother.
The website initially reported that OG Mally was a female monkey, a mistake that has been corrected.
19. Beliebers worldwide are reacting to their idol’s ongoing symian saga in different ways. Some are infuriated by even the IDEA that a country would separate a boy from his monkey (public health concerns be damned).

Mally has been taken away from Justin because he didn’t have the paperwork to own a monkey. HE IS JUSTIN BIEBER HE DON’T NEED PAPERS #FREEOG— Justin Bieber Fan.
