Bieber's Hamster

DEAD (2012-2013)

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.

Sometimes--though frequently of late--TMZ is a guilty of a remarkably pathetic level of yellow journalism (if one could consider a tabloid who violates every journalistic principle to be proper "journalism.) Within a matter of days, they've hyperbolized topics ranging from Britney Spears wearing pants, Ke$ha drinking and sitting, and a hamster dying.

A hamster life avg is 18-24 months. I'm sure the girl did nothing wrong, but I bet PETA comments

Very sad. However, . . . if this young lady, Tori, needs something warm to wrap her hands around and kiss the top of (instead of the hamster), well then, I just happen to have a helpful idea ;) . . .

Its easy for us to automatically blame this airhead but the hamster was probably sick when bieber had him so he gave it away so he wouldnt have to deal with it.

Just proves what an irresponsable role model puts out there to his fans. BE AS IRRESPONSABLE AS YOU CAN!

I am disgusted by your broadcast about the HPV Virus. How ignorant of TMZ and the poor girl that you put on blast!! There are several kinds of the HPV Virus that cause cervical cancer! Not vaginal cancer!! Not all HPV are contagious or can be carried to other partners with sex. Not all cause vaginal warts either!! You have probably ruined that girls career and her lifestyle as it is now. I love your show but to be honest I am turning the channel.
