Macaque In Coat Seen In Toronto
Ikea Monkey: Macaque In Coat Seen In Toronto
Shoppers at an Ikea store in Canada were left stunned when a monkey wearing a John Motson-style coat was spotted wandering around the car park.
The smartly-dressed primate, whose jacket resembles the sheepskin one often worn by the football commentator, turned up at the entrance to the furniture store in Toronto.
The Toronto Star identified the monkey as a rhesus macaque - a species that prefers tropical habitats to the chilly -8C temperatures often seen in Toronto in December.
The newspaper said the macaque was reunited with its owner and handed over to the city's animal services department, which charged a man with owning a banned animal.
