Justin Bieber brought his pet snake to the MTV VMAs last year, and then quickly put him up for auction. The snake, named Johnson, was bought by Michael Kronick, and the proceeds were donated to the Pencils of Promise charity.
Michael however, never planned on keeping the pet snake. Instead, he donated the little guy to a zoo. Here’s what Michael told E! News about his decision:
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. I am a huge pet and animal lover and was amazed that Mr. Bieber would actually auction off his own personal pet. I wanted to make sure the snake would be well taken care of for the rest of his life. I’m very pleased where Johnson now resides.
You can find Johnson at the Reptile & Amphibian Discovery Zoo in Owatonna, Minnesota.
