Monkey in Stylish Coat is a Real News Story

Yep, end of times are not far away.  Maybe the Mayans were right?

Monkey in stylish coat caught outside Toronto IKEA store

TORONTO (AP) — Shoppers at an Ikea store in Toronto weren’t monkeying around when they reported a primate on the loose.

Customers spotted a monkey — clad in a pint-sized shearling coat — wandering around the store’s parking lot Sunday afternoon.

The animal made its way through rows of parked cars and ended up outside a set of store doors. Ikea staff lured the primate into a corner before calling police, who contacted the city’s Animal Services department, said Staff Sgt. Ed Dzingala.

“It was just outside the store, just in a corner area where the monkey had nowhere to go, but it was pretty scared,” Dzingala said. He said the monkey had escaped its crate in a parked car. The monkey, which reportedly wore a diaper as well, never made it inside the store and was picked up by Animal Services officers within half an hour.
