Shoppers at Ikea in Toronto got the shock of their lives when they spotted a rather dapper looking monkey wandering around the store and parking lot on Sunday.
The well-dressed primate, sporting a shearling coat, was quite the sight and quickly caught the attention of social media.
It appears that this most unusual of shoppers managed to make its way out of a crate and the car it was stored in, before making its way into the popular chain store, to which the Canadian police conceded: “It’s a smart monkey.”
“We saw a crowd of people and a little animal and I was like oh my gosh it’s a monkey,” shopper Bronwyn Page told Toronto CTVNews .
“It was very bizarre to see a real live monkey there. It was really small and just funny dressed in the coat,” she said.
The fashionable fella was eventually cornered inside the store by police and according to reports, the monkey’s owner came forward to authorities and faces a charge of having a prohibited animal.
The monkey is now in the care of Toronto Animal Services.
