A hamster organization is accusing Justin Bieber of animal cruelty after he gifted his pet hamster PAC outside a concert earlier this month.

The California Hamster Association says it considers the act animal cruelty, even if the pop star’s intentions were good.

The CHA says that hamsters are fragile animals that “often succumb quickly to illness and death,” especially when faced with “sudden environmental change.”

It says that if Bieber no longer wanted the pet, he could have left it in the care of an animal shelter or rescue center.

So far, Bieber’s representatives have not commented on the matter.
