Shoppers at the IKEA store in Toronto were shocked to spot a monkey dressed in a coat roaming the car park on Sunday.

Toronto police say the seven-month-old monkey escaped from its owner and managed to find his way outside.

Lol, I imagine it strolling by various people. Some not noticing it, some noticing it with half glances, walking by bewildered but trying not to show it publicly, etc.

And ha ha, Sarah was a day off from meeting the monkey.

Lots of Monkeys go to Ikea, they're mostly in tatty jeans and dirty T-shirts.

The monkey was probably on it's way to a job interview. I heard he was applying for the position of 'Instruction Manual Producer'.

Are we sure it was a Monkey, and not a Wolf in sheeps clothes ? Or maybe a Politician (no names) in Panto gear.

People bringing animals they shouldn't into the country is why we have pythons in Florida, killer bees and those stupid Chinese carp taking over among other things.

I thought killer bees self-migrated to the US from Mexico, as opposed to being brought in. I could be wrong, though.
