Posted: Updated:

A monkey wearing a coat caused quite a stir when it got loose at a Toronto Ikea and was later captured on Sunday afternoon, the CBC reported.

Police say the 'smart monkey' escaped from a crate inside a car parked at the store, located around Leslie Street and Highway 401. It stepped out in some snappy attire, a winter coat that is reportedly its favourite.

UPDATE: Darwin the Ikea monkey has been relocated to the Story Book Farm Primate Sanctuary in Sunderland, Ont., according to CTV.

The animal was spotted in the store's upper parking garage at about 2 p.m., the Toronto Star said. Security managed to corner the monkey, which shopper Bronwyn Page described as "agitated," and animal services collected the little guy.

The owner of the monkey, a five-month-old Rhesus Macaque, has come forward, and was fined $240 for having a prohibited animal, CP24 reported.
