Justin Bieber
's hamster PAC -- the one he gave away to a random screaming fan less than three months ago -- is now spinning in that great hamster wheel in the sky ... in other words, he's dead.

TMZ broke the story ... Bieber unloaded the pet on an unsuspecting teenage girl in Atlanta last December ... cage and everything ... following his Jingle Ball concert. He told her, "That's all you ... you gotta take care of PAC."

The girl -- 18-year-old Tori McClure -- promised to take good care of the rodent ... and she actually did ... until the poor bastard kicked the bucket this week.

Tori tells TMZ, the hamster started to lose its hair two weeks ago so she took it to the vet over the weekend, but it was too little, too late.

We did some rodent research ... hamster hair loss can be caused by a variety of ailments, including chronic renal failure or a low protein diet ... it's unclear exactly what was eating PAC.

Tori says she buried PAC by a tree in her backyard, telling TMZ, "It's very peaceful there."

Unlike a Bieber concert.

Rodman thinks he's going to ride in the Pope Mobile, the obese Segal is in Russia teaching fitness, and now Justin's hamster has died? This is just too much to absorb in one day!

How long do hamsters usually live? I know when we used to have them as class pets in school, they had to be replaced pretty frequently.

I just heard that JB's mom has said all's well. Phew. Nothing curbs public opinion like a note from a mother. Looks good on ya, little gangsta thug wannabe. Your mommy's in your corner.

That's what happens if you stick it in your butt too often.

Inconceivable!    

This is news, seriously?! It was not even Bieber's hamster anymore anyway. Will TMZ report later today on what's happened to the dog Carol Burnett gave up for adoption 20 years ago? Follow those important stories, TMZ - we're all counting on you.
