Justin Bieber pays $10K fine for trying to bring monkey into Germany
Mally the monkey now lives at a zoo in northern Germany
German authorities say Justin Bieber has paid $10,700 US he owed after attempting to bring a pet monkey into the country last year without the necessary papers.
Franz Emde, a spokesman for the German Federal Nature Conservation Agency, said that Bieber this week paid a $2,800 fine for the monkey's import plus the costs of several weeks' care at an animal shelter.
Failure to pay could have put Bieber in legal difficulty if he travelled in the EU.
