HOLLYWOOD, Calf. – Justin Bieber is reported to have ‘abandoned’ his third pet, an adorable American bulldog puppy called Karma. Bieber left the dog with a dog trainer back in February, and hasn’t returned for her since. Trevor Dvernichuk, the trainer revealed he “had been left with the pooch for months.”
Dvernichuk has made several attempts to get in touch with the pop star, however, he has not been successful in reaching the celebrity. The trainer also claims Bieber has not compensated him yet. In December 2012, he gave away his pet hamster, Pac, to a random screaming fan at a Jingle Ball concert, making her promise she would ‘take care of him’.
Sadly the teenage super-fan didn’t turn out to be a very good surrogate parent to Pac, and he went to ‘little hamster heaven,’ in March 2013.
In June last year, Bieber’s Capuchin monkey was seized by German customs officials after the singer brought him on tour to Munich with him without the right vaccination and import paperwork. He had the opportunity to retrieve 20-month old Mally, but failed to collect him on time and missed a deadline to send the documents, according to customs spokesman Thomas Meister.
Mac Andrews of the animal rights organization Global Conservation Group released a statement saying:
Justin’s clear record of neglect and irresponsibility demonstrates his lack of respect for the animals that he takes into his care. His contemptuous actions are perpetuating the belief that animals are objects that can be thrown away like a broken pencil when you get bored.”
The organization also sent his manager a letter requesting that Bieber not acquire any further pets in the future.
