The capuchin monkey was seized by German customs Thursday when the 19-year-old singer failed to produce the necessary customs documents after landing in Munich.
Reporters from around the world have besieged the city animal shelter where `Mally' the monkey is being kept in quarantine.

The shelter said in a statement Tuesday that the 14-week-old animal shouldn't have been taken away from its mother until it was a year old.
German media report that several zoos have offered to give the monkey a home if the Canadian singer doesn't reclaim it in time.
A Bieber representative did not immediately respond to an emailed request for comment.
