Ikea Monkey's Owner Wants it Back

Wandering primate confiscated by authorities


The owner of a monkey caught wandering outside a Toronto Ikea store on the weekend told CBC News Tuesday the tiny primate rarely left her side until he was confiscated by authorities — and she wants him back.

Yasmin Nakhuda spoke to CBC News in a 20-minute phone interview Tuesday about the primate that captured worldwide attention after he somehow let himself out of a parked car Sunday and ambled around the Ikea parking lot dressed in a fitted shearling coat.
