Though the monkey that was loose in a Toronto IKEA earlier this week was eventually apprehended, and is currently being held by the Toronto Animal Service, the wandering rhesus macaque's owner isn't pleased. Darwin -- because of course the monkey's name is Darwin -- is currently slated to be sent to an animal sanctuary. Yasmin Nakhuda, the monkey's master and a real estate lawyer, is preparing to take the whole thing to court. She must really want to keep that funky monkey.
Look, we've all been there -- you find yourself needing a new bookcase, so you decide to head to the local IKEA to purchase some new shelves, and maybe grab a couple of tasty meatballs while you're at it. In the rush of excitement of shopping for new furniture, though, you accidentally leave your pet monkey behind. Happens to the best of us, right? OK, on second thought, maybe that's not a series of events that you're familiar with, but at least one Canadian shopper presumably is, judging by the rhesus macaque monkey found wandering a Toronto IKEA yesterday afternoon. Lest we neglect the most important part of this story, we now direct you attention to the monkey's little coat, because OH MY GOD YOU GUYS LOOK AT HIS LITTLE COAT!!!
