Trending Now in the UK: Monkey in sheepskin coat shops at Ikea

Shoppers visiting an Ikea outside Toronto, Canada, yesterday afternoon were treated to the usual sights: couples bickering over soft furnishings, shoppers stuffing meatballs into their mouths, a monkey wearing a sheepskin coat — wait, what?

Toronto Police Staff Sgt Ed Dzingala revealed the monkey was a pet whose owners left it in their car while they joined the herds perusing Scandinavian-inspire​d flatpack furniture.

After breaking out, the "smart monkey" was spotted in the Ikea parking lot and confined by staff until it was captured by animal control officers.
