The fur is literally flying after Justin Bieber posed for photos with a pair of wild cats.
Toronto Animal Services has recently sent a letter to the “Sorry” singer warning him that it’s illegal for felines other than domestic cats to enter Toronto city limits.
Bieber, who is now 22, sparked an uproar in late April after he was photographed kneeling down and petting a leashed tiger at his father’s engagement party in the Canadian city.
One month later, he was seen cradling a lion cub backstage at his Toronto concert.
At least one of those incidents led a non-Bieleber complaining to Toronto Animal Services, according to the letter obtained by the Daily News.
The agency warned the pop star that such felines can be seized and also impounded if authorities discover that they are being kept within the city limits.
PETA, which roared over the singer’s photo with the tiger just earlier this year, also released a statement Thursday slamming the Bowmanville Zoo which provided the tiger for Jeremy Bieber’s engagement party.
No reputable animal-care facility lends out exotic animals for private parties and backstage Instagram photos,” the statement stated. “PETA hopes the authorities’ warning to Justin Bieber will remind people everywhere that lions and tigers are sensitive living animals, not selfie props.”
A spokesperson for Mr. Bieber declined to comment on the letter.
