LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL…. OMG. Sorry, Had to get that out. Okay. Remember when Justin Bieber randomly got a new pet hamster back in October (along with a tattoo of an owl)? Well, major shouts-out to PITNBR Linnea because she totally called this one in the comments: I really feel sorry for that hamster:/ He is going to drag that poor thing on these meet and greet things, with screaming girls… omg poor hamster… He’s going to get traumatized for life. The California Hamster Association (sorry, that’s what all those LOLs were for… I can’t believe this group exists!) wholeheartedly agrees with Linnea and they’re sticking up for that little hamster’s rights. Click inside to find out why they’re accusing the pop star of animal cruelty.
TMZ has the report:
Justin Bieber issued a DEATH SENTENCE to his pet hamster PAC when he gave it away to a screaming fan (who promised to love and cherish it forever) outside of a concert earlier this month … this according to the California Hamster Association (yes, there’s actually a California Hamster Association).
TMZ spoke to a rep for the group … who tells us Bieber committed an act of “animal cruelty” when he gifted away the animal … even if his intentions were good.
The CHA tells us … hamsters are fragile creatures that “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.”
So what should Bieber have done instead? The CHA says if Justin no longer wanted the pet, he could have left it in the care of an animal shelter or rescue center … so they could’ve handed it off to a responsible new owner in a safer manner.
As for PAC, he’s currently alive and well in the care of Bieber’s 18-year-old super-fan Tori … who has vowed to treat the animal like a tiny rodent god.
So far, no comment for Bieber.
LMAO. That Ish Craaaayyyy! I totally agree that giving the hamster away to a Belieber who was probably in a moment of sheer delirium may not have been a good look. On the plus side, if she’s as obsessed with Bieber as it seems, there’s noooo way she’s letting lil’ Pac out of her sight.
What do you guys think? Can we trust young Tori with the hamster? Or did Justin Bieber make another horrible choice that he’ll never be able to live down (i.e. those pants)?
