Justin Bieber's abandoned pet monkey 'has issues'

Bieber Monkey The monkey has issues speaking the capuchin language

The capuchin monkey belonging to Justin Bieber, which was confiscated in Germany in 2013, is apparently still struggling to integrate into the zoo which took ownership of him.

The animal was kept by airport officials at Munich because Biebs didn't have the right paperwork for his pet.

But he did not return to claim the animal, so authorities sent the 23-week-old monkey to the animal park.

Now, according to Asta Knoth from the Serengeti Wildlife Park in Hodenhagen: "He still has issues speaking the capuchin language".

"He still tries to imitate human speech. He sometimes makes weird scratchy sounds which are not typical for capuchins. That’s why we think he still tries to talk to humans."
