Monkeys NEED to be with their troops. They are NOT pets. They can’t be proper monkeys and be properly healthy or learn how to be a monkey without their mother and troop. Humans can not replicate that. Only experts can get close and they know that the best thing is for monkeys to be with their own. But it is a hard challenge to rehabilitate ex-pets. The pet trade means mothers being killed and many young monkeys dying because they can’t survive without their mum. The ones left alive are sold, and doomed to be a plaything. They are fluffy and cute and that is why we like them, but if you want to be around monkeys so much then volunteer at the many sanctuaries.

yes they can be pet monkeys. Can people who can’t pick up stuff with ttheir hands but thats not why he wants a monkey. But all im wondering is that where did he get the monkey come from?? I never saw a monkey when i frist bought my frist pet.if i was thinking the same thing as you then I would probably ask a scientist to change him to a monkey if you think thats a good idea to you make sure you ask your parents that ok?

I sure hope all of you who voted YES for Mr. Bieber to have a monkey realize now since the poor innocent monkey has been confiscated, that this was a bad idea!! If Justin Bieber really loves monkeys, he needs to do some community service work at Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary and learn that monkeys are not toys or pets! They are wild animals and deserve to live a life according to their nature! His white-faced capuchin monkey was likely pulled from his mother monkey’s arms as early as three days old, you can imagine the horror both mother and baby monkey must feel during this forced separation. Because of Mr. Bieber’s ignorance or lack of concern Mally, the monkey may pay the ultimate price – many monkeys are killed when they are confiscated! I only hope Mally will find his way to an accredited sanctuary home. I am the Founder and Director of Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary and we will offer Mally a permanent, safe home here at the sanctuary, please contact our office 386-462-7779 in Gainesville, FL.

Well he’s already failed to be a responsible caretaker to this poor baby monkey. He tried to sneak him into Munich without a health certificate and the poor thing is in quarrantine at the airport. That was just arrogance on his part, I’m sorry

This is a tragedy. Monkeys are wild animals and he WILL NOT care for it properly. The little one appears to only be several weeks old and was pulled from his mother. PLEASE Justin do the right thing and get this baby to a primate sanctuary immediately.

I work at a Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary where we have over 100 capuchin monkeys. They are wild animals and do not make good pets. There is only one capuchin here who has not bitten anybody, yet. Their canine teeth are big and they do a lot of damage. We have a lot of capuchins who have had teeth extracted in a miserable attempt to make them safer as a ‘pet’. These poor monkeys have to have soft food to eat, but pulling their teeth did not make them much less dangerous.

I feel sorry for this poor monkey. How would you feel if you were abducted as a baby and raised by another species with no humans to relate to?

Get this monkey to an accredited sanctuary and use this misguided moment to educate people about not buying or keeping wild animals as pets. Behind the cuteness of exotic pets are tragic breeding and wildlife trafficking industries.

We don’t blame Justin, I actually started Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary when a white-faced capuchin monkey was given to me, the same species that Justin is holding in the photo. I found out early on that monkeys are wild animals and are not pets. Monkeys need to be with other monkeys, we now have over a hundred ex-pet capuchin monkeys at the sanctuary. Justin is welcome to come to Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary and see first hand what his little baby monkey will grow up to be, and we wil be happy to offer his baby monkey a good home where he or she can meet other monkeys and have a more natural life.

Monkeys are wild animals, NOT PETS! This baby would have been ripped from the arms of a frantic mother to be sold into the pet trade.about 24 hours after being born. Shame on you Justin. The baby likely cannot find its mother now but go see Jungle Friends Monkey Sanctuary in Florida to see how monkeys really need to live to be well adjusted and happy. That monkey will need to be attached to you 24/7 and how will you do that with your career and even then you cannot provide the care it needs. Most pet monkeys end up with diabetes due to improper diet and stress. At puberty it will turn on you if not before. It needs to live with and be a part of a social group of other monkeys.
Best advice for you get a life, not a monkey, contact Jungle Friends, they have posted here..

Oh, no?! My name is Kari Bagnall, founder and director of Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary and I here to tell you that monkeys are not ‘pets’ they are wild animals and do not do well in captivity. The little baby monkey Justin Bieber is holding is a white-faced capuchin monkey, we have over 100 ex-pet capuchin monkeys at the sanctuary, it doesn’t work for the monkey or for the human. The tiny baby Justin is holding is probably only weeks old. Unscrupulous breeders steal these tiny babies from their natural monkeys as early as 3 days old! Capuchins can live on their mother’s backs and nurse until they are two years old! Baby monkeys need their mother monkeys, not a human! Please have Justin contact me as soon as possible to come and visit the sanctuary and let’s get this poor baby monkeys socialized with other monkeys at Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary. Here the baby will be introduced to other monkeys and be allowed to do monkey things, not live a life of species isolation where he or she will likely go mad!

I agree…capuchins should never be separated from their mothers at this young of an age…I think this is a horrible and cruel idea’

Aawwww yes, I think maybe a little monkey is just what he needs right now after his split with Selena and just generally having a hard time, animals are so loving, but I do hope he’s a responsible pet owner, they are a responsibility too. It reminds me of a joke with me and my Mum. I am a girl who has an illness, it’s bad but I always try and keep a really positive attitude, some time ago we were discussing things and my dream to adopt a child came up, I have a friend who adopted from China and I was just saying how maybe a child who looked similar to me might be an idea so it didn’t stand out, I said “I wouldn’t be sure where to go”?, my Mum said “MONKEYWORLD”!! ha ha so Justin marry me and we can then all be a happy family…albeit a strange one!!. Please guys join my Facebook group ‘CAMPAIGN FOR SHAMEME ADAMS TO MEET JUSTIN BIEBER’! or trend it. x

This baby monkeys needs his mother monkey, not Justin! Dogs are great pets, and there are so many in need of a good loving home, monkeys are wild animals and do NOT do well in captivity, they are wild animals, not pets, please encourage Justin to place this monkey at Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary where he will be with other monkeys and have a monkey life, not a Hollywood life!

When the monkey bites him or whoever, it won’t be the monkey’s fault. Monkeys are animals that react using their animal instincts. Monkeys do not make good house pets. Let the monkey be a monkey with other monkeys. Justin should take better care of himself before he adopts an animal. Seems like he has many problems lately. Babies and animals DO NOT “GIVE” LOVE BUT THEY REQUIRE FOR US TO LOVE THEM UNCONDITIONALLY. They require lots of work and time from an owner e.g. cleaning poop/pee, training to not bite and to not bark, etc).
