justin-bieber-monkeyBERLIN (AP) — German customs authorities say Justin Bieber's monkey is going nowhere, despite a request of the animal shelter where it's living that it go to a zoo.

Mally the monkey was seized by customs March 28 when Bieber failed to produce its papers after landing in Munich.

The Munich shelter said Tuesday it received an email last week purporting to be from Bieber's representatives saying they were "looking into the idea of placing Mally at a zoo in Germany" and asking for recommendations. Bieber's representative didn't immediately respond to an email for comment.

But customs spokesman Thomas Meister says that Mally will stay in the shelter until Bieber or someone with his power of attorney gets in touch with them directly.

Bieber has until May 17 to provide Mally's paperwork.
