A Toronto branch of Ikea was the site of an unusual visitor on Sunday in the form of a debonair monkey.
Shoppers visiting the store were surprised when they spotted a small monkey wearing a jacket roaming around the car park. The seven-month-old primate named Darwin had managed to escape from its owner and found its way outside. "There was a group of people around and a little thing on the ground... at first I didn't know what kind of animal it was or what it was and I was like 'oh my gosh, that's a monkey," said customer Bronwyn Page.
The authorities were soon called in to address the situation, fortunately despite its adventure the monkey was unharmed and in good health. The owner has been charged with possession of a prohibited animal and the monkey has since been signed over to Toronto Animal Services where it is now being properly looked after.
"Heard the one about the monkey dressed in a jacket at IKEA? No? A customer at the Toronto branch of the Swedish furniture chain explains all."
