A Cornish animal charity has waded into the row over Justin Bieber's monkey.

The popstar is facing a big fine after trying to bring it into Germany without the right paperwork.

The three month-old Capuchin monkey called "Mally" has been put in quarantine.

Senior Keeper Claire from Wild Futures Monkey Sanctuary near Looe said the animals should not be kept as pets:

"Primates are wild animals. They're very different to dogs or cats. They're not domesticated. In order to kept as pets, they're usually taken from their mums when they're tiny infants and they suffer, unfortunately. The separation from their mother causes lasting psychological damage.

"There are primates out there suffering in people's back gardens, in sheds, just in really inappropriate situations. Another additional concern of course is, because they are wild animals, what happens several years down the line is that they can become very aggressive."
