Something tells us this might be one of the strangest things to ever happen inside an IKEA. "Why is there a monkey in IKEA?" asks a bewildered customer in Toronto, Canada. The monkey named Darwin was found unaccompanied and caused quite a stir around the world after photos of him wearing a well-fitted beige coat surfaced online. Spokesperson Mary Lou Leiher at Toronto Animal Services says 7-month-old Darwin obviously had a stressful time but he's doing fine and eating well.
Darwin's owners, originally from Montreal, were forced to hand over the monkey to animal services because he is considered a prohibited animal under Toronto's bylaws. The owners, who have not been identified, were fined $240. Darwin is now headed to his new home at the Storybook Farms Primate Sanctuary in Sunderland.
