A Chillicothe native, I am a wife and mother of two. Graduating from Missouri Western with an English/Journalism/Public Relations degree in 2003, I worked for the Constitution-Tribune for over six years. Over the last year, our family has faced some struggles with a daughter who has very special dietary needs. I am constantly looking at new ways to bring dinner to our table and experimenting with little to no protein for my girl.

A monkey, found wearing a thick shearling coat and a diaper, was found roaming outside a Toronto Ikea store Sunday, The Globe and Mail reports.



Toronto Police Staff Sergeant Ed Dzingala described the animal as a "smart monkey" that was left in the car while its owners shopped. He said that the monkey was somehow able to escape its crate, open the car door and make its way to the customer pick-up area at a North York Ikea.

Ikea employees ushered the monkey into the store and called animal control while the owners were shopping inside the store. No harm came to the monkey, who was described as scared by the attention. The owners later came forward and were charged a $240 fine for having a prohibited animal and the monkey was taken into custody by animal services, according to a CTV News reporter.



News of the monkey quickly spread online after a customer posted a photo, and two joke accounts soon popped up: @IkeaMonkey and @Ikea_Monkey.
