BERLIN (July 30, 2013)--German authorities have posted a public notice urging teen idol Justin Bieber to get in touch with them about an unpaid bill for the care of his former pet monkey Mally.
Bieber failed to produce the necessary vaccination and import papers for the monkey when he arrived for a European tour in March, and Mally became the property of the German government in May after the Canadian singer failed to claim his pet.
A spokesman for the Federal Agency for Nature Conservation says Bieber has one week to pay $1,500 for the monkey's care.
Franz Boehmer said Tuesday that if Bieber doesn’t cough up the cash, officials "have ways of making him pay" the next time he enters Germany.
Bieber is already on the hook for a separate bill from Munich customs.
