Monkey in sheepskin coat photographed roaming Toronto Ikea store
A monkey, wearing a Del Boy-style sheepskin coat, has been photographed outside an Ikea store in Canada.
Shoppers took photos of the sartorial simian in the car park of the furniture store in Toronto.
One shopper, Bronwyn Page, saw the animal, thought to be a rhesus macaque. She told CTVNews: “All the people were trying to call in towards them, but it was very scared, it was darting all over the place.”
“This is so bizarre, why is there a monkey at Ikea?”
The monkey’s owner has now collected it from police. Police said it let itself out of a crate while the owner was shopping.
Staff Sergeant Ed Dzingala told the Globe and Mail newspaper: "It was pretty scared. It was a tame monkey,"
"Nobody got hurt. The monkey was a little scared, that's all."
