Mysterious monkey in posh miniature winter coat found alone at Toronto Ikea
A small monkey, dressed in a shearling-like winter coat, was on the loose outside an Ikea in Toronto’s North York area on Sunday, after letting itself out of its cage and the car belonging to its owners.
At around 3 p.m. ET, the diminutive primate was spotted in the store’s upper parking lot, where it was cornered by several Ikea staff members, who also called animal control to come retrieve the monkey.
“It apparently let itself out of its crate, opened the car door and went for a walk,” Toronto Police Sgt. Ed Dzingala said. “Smart monkey.”
