Justin Bieber's monkey confiscated in Munich

“You cannot just land with a wild animal and bring it into the country if the flight has not originated from another EU country and you don’t have the proper paperwork,” a customs spokesman said.

Justin Bieber lost his monkey to quarantine in Germany last week.

Bieber was detained for "some time," according to the UK newspaper, and the singer could now face a fine of more than $15,000.

Apparently the monkey was a gift from record producer Mally Mall, who recently tweeted:
