Nobody knows how or why yet, but earlier today a tiny monkey (it looks to be a capuchin, though we’re certainly no experts) was spotted by several shoppers at the North York Ikea, at Leslie and the 401. It seemed unattached—nobody has claimed responsibility for the monkey (yet)—but at least well-tended, wearing a shearling coat to protect from the winter chill. The Starreports that the monkey was safely captured by Toronto Animal Services, and that he or she has been snacking on grapes while calming down.
UPDATE, 6:18 PM: CP24 is reporting that the monkey’s human has come forward. Police will not be pressing charges, and the monkey will hopefully be home safe shortly.
