Lost monkey in stylish coat drives IKEA shoppers bananas
TORONTO (NBC) -- Toronto's newest celebrity is a sophisticated, smart and frugal… monkey.
The 7-month-old simian was found wandering around an IKEA parking lot Sunday afternoon in a shearling coat and diaper. Described as a "smart monkey" by Ed Dzingala, a staff sergeant with the Toronto Police, he managed to escape his crate, open his owners' car door, and make it to the customer pickup area – all while his owners were shopping inside.
Toronto Animal Services brought the wandering pet into custody. The owner faces a charge for having a prohibited animal – and could pay a $240 fine.
