Monkey in Winter Coat Found at IKEA

Twitter lit up with pictures yesterday when a monkey wearing a warm winter coat was sotted all alone in the IKEA parking lot in Toronto.

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.”

Toronto Animal Services took custody of the monkey, and its owner came to claim him. However, as it is  prohibited animal, the owner went home with a $240 fine instead of the monkey. Link -via Metafilter
