SIDEWALKING: The Monkey That Went To IKEA

IKEA, suburban Toronto, Sunday by DZD_LISA

THE GUARDIAN: In an incident which would defy belief had it not been well witnessed and, more importantly, captured on Instagram, shoppers at an Ikeastore in suburban Toronto were greeted on Sunday by the sight of a tiny, confused and seemingly lost pet monkey running round the entrance lobby. If this was not enough, said monkey was clad in a close-fitting, button-up sheepskin jacket and wearing a nappy. Toronto police believe the animal was inside a cage in a car parked at the store in North York but somehow managed to free itself. “It was pretty scared. It was a tame monkey,” Staff Sergeant Ed Dzingala was quoted as saying by the Globe and Mail newspaper. “Nobody got hurt. The monkey was a little scared, that’s all.” MORE
