A campaign has been launched to bring Justin Bieber's monkey to Cornwall.

Pirate FM told you how the three month old Capuchin is stuck in quarantine in Germany, after the star tried to take it into the country.

Customs officials there decided he did not have the right paperwork.

Now Wild Futures Monkey Sanctuary near Looe has said it will look after little Mally.

Claire Turnbull, Senior Keeper, said: "People don't intentionally want to cause harm to that animal, but the breeders don't exactly give the full story of what might happen.

"They sell this animal based on its cute and cuddly nature when it's an infant, and what they don't tell people is that it's going to turn into something potentially aggressive.

"When people get a baby primate, it's very small, tiny and defenceless, but because they are wild animals what happens several years down the line is that they can become very aggressive.

"And that's often when we get called up and asked to rescue a monkey, is when the owners become scared of the individual and realise they've made a mistake."
