Keep Animal-Abusing Celebrity from Owning Pets


Target: Norman Willis, Executive Director of the Canadian Council on Animal Care

Goal: Ban celebrity singer from further pet ownership following multiple incidents of animal abuse

Justin Bieber is a wildly popular young star who has the money and power to be able to live carelessly and recklessly. However, this recklessness should not extend to the lives of innocent animals in his care. Again and again, Bieber’s neglect and outright abuse of his pets has been plastered all across social networking sites and across the new networks at large, and the international community has done very little to prevent him from further pet ownership. In fact, he has just required a new bulldog puppy, an animal that is at significant risk if the star’s past indiscretions are any indication.

Bieber’s long list of animal rights violations include a snake that he auctioned off, a hamster that he simply handed to a random screaming fan one night after a concert, and a 14-week old capuchin monkey that he not only tore from its mother before the baby could be separated from her, but then abandoned it at an animal shelter in Germany when he didn’t have the right papers to bring an exotic pet into the country.

The California Hamster Association has commented that hamsters “often succumb quickly to illness and death,” especially when faced with “sudden environmental change.”In short … “The moment that hamster was handed off to a screaming girl in a harsh, frenzied environment was likely the moment it gazed at the short path to its doom.” The hamster subsequently died, most likely in petrified fear. The capuchin monkey was left to languish in Germany after absolutely no one in Bieber’s large entourage had even the slightest bit of foresight to acquire papers necessary to bring an exotic animal into another country. Even the winning bidder of the baby boa constrictor that Bieber essentially sold off, Michael Kronick, was quoted as saying, “I found it really disgusting that celebrities like Bieber would stoop to a level of using living creatures as a fashion accessory and then so easily discard it.”

Please sign this petition to urge the Canadian Council on Animal Care to ban Justin Bieber from pet ownership so that we may prevent any further animal cruelty from this particular star, and to set a precedent for other rich and powerful people that they can not harm animals without consequences.


Dear Executive Director Norman Willis,

Canadian pop star Justin Bieber has committed several egregious acts of animal cruelty against exotic animals and pets. He has auctioned a baby boa constrictor to anyone who would pay for it, handed a terrified hamster off to a random passerby who subsequently let it die without proper care, and ripped a baby capuchin monkey out of its mother’s arms only to abandon it in Germany, motherless and alone.

His treatment of animals has been irresponsible and neglectful at best and cruel and abusive by general standards of animal care. Yet now he has just acquired a new toy for him to discard when he grows tired of it: a baby bulldog.

Please ban your citizen from owning any additional pets, and prevent this abuse from continuing. As an international community, we must begin to set a precedent that we will no longer tolerate the blatant and public abuse of animals.

    This just confirms my beliefs that he is an azz wipe

  2. This is completely unexceptionable.Being famous or a star does not give one a get away with anything card.It shouldn’t at any rate. The person that had the baby monkey is just as guilty as Bieber in the fact that this was allowed to happen.The person selling this baby monkey should have told Bieber NO as simple as that.And he should not be allowed to have any other pets if this is how he treats them with such indifference.This is disgusting to say the least.I am personally tired of celebrities and any name person getting away with any and everything just because of who they think they are. A crime is a crime no matter who is doing it and Animal Abuse is a crime.So please sign this petition and send a clear message to Mr. Bieber that what he did with his pets is not alright.

  3. This rich talentless spoilt brat needs to learn that animals are not toys or accessories, they are thinking, feeling living creatures and he is not fit to clean up their excrement. Punish him severely life time ban and HUGE FINE that really hurts his bank balance. Proceeds to preventing animal cruelty, and rehabilitation of abused animals

  4. Sorry this won’t ever happen. The rich are in the lead for any and every privilege known to man. If anyone thinks they can strip a rich person from entitlement, let him stand now or forever hold the silence. Sorry i cannot in my right mind even consider signing such a petition.

    • Jayme, I’m sorry you feel that way, it is up to you.But if everyone operated with those thoughts nothing would ever change.And most of our petitions are an up hill battle rather it has to do with a rich person or some wrong thinking government or the list gos on and on.Here while back I had a petition going to have Salazar and all the BLM personnel fired and arrested and prosecuted for animal abuse. This is something like the rich theory but that didn’t stop me from putting it out there and attempting to get it done.At any rate we all must do what we personally feel is the right thing to do.

    What a complete and utter arsehole this boy is. He uses animals as a gimmick to cover for his lack of talent. He must be banned from owning any animal. His parents obviously didn’t teach him to respect animals. What a plonker!

    Animals are not props to give away or throw aside when you get tired of them. Idiots like this should never have any animal in their lives.
