    A small monkey wearing a winter coat and a diaper apparently looks for it's owners at an IKEA in Toronto on Sunday Dec. 9, 2012.



    The Ikea Monkey has a name and it is not Billy or Johan, but fittingly, Darwin.
    Toronto’s Animal Services says Darwin, a rhesus macaque monkey, which was found in a shearling-like winter coat at a northern Toronto Ikea Sunday, is seven months old and his owners are originally from Montreal.
    Darwin, now a worldwide sartorial sensation, is a prohibited animal under Toronto’s bylaws and has been taken into Animal Services’ custody.
    The owners, who have not been identified, did not know Darwin was an illegal animal in Toronto and have been given a $240 fine.
    The owners signed over custody of Darwin to Animal Services, who will try to find him an “appropriate” home.

    Animal Services described Darwin as “agitated” after his capture but in good health.
    Darwin was spotted in the Ikea parking lot in North York Sunday afternoon wearing a fitted coat. The scared monkey was cornered by Ikea employees before Animal Services were able to wrangle him.
    Darwin was evolved enough to escape the clutches of his owner’s vehicle, police said.
    “It apparently let itself out of its crate, opened the car door and went for a walk,” Toronto Police Sgt. Ed Dzingala said. “Smart monkey.”
