Just days after a Toronto Santa was fired for talking trash about the Maple Leafs to a 3-year-old, a fashionable monkey was found wandering an Ikea parking lot in the same southern Ontario city.
The “smart monkey”—as it was described by Toronto Police Staff Sergeant Ed Dzingala—is believed to have escaped its crate, opened the car door, and set out on a jaunt in the Ikea parking lot earlier today, according to CBC News.
The Globe and Mail reported that the monkey, found wearing a coat and diaper, was captured by animal control. Its owners, who were shopping inside the store at the time of the incident, contacted police.
Photos of the rogue monkey popped up on Twitter and Instagram, including the photo above and this gem:
