Washington, Dec 21 (ANI): Justin Bieber is facing the wrath of animal rights campaigners by giving away his pet hamster to a fan.

The Canadian teen titan thrilled a young girl at the Jingle Ball in Atlanta, Georgia last week by handing her a cage containing his beloved pet, named Pac.

Justin told the fan to "take care" of the hamster, which he adopted in October, and she promised Pac would be well taken care of.

However, officials at the California Hamster Association insist Justin was cruel to give away his pet.

"(Hamsters) often succumb quickly to illness and death (when faced with) sudden environmental change," a spokesperson for the group told TMZ.com.

"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 spokesperson said. (ANI)
