Bicycling and Walking Around

My bicycle is our second car. I love to bicycle in all weather, for all distances, and on all routes. Bicycling has brought so much joy to my life, and I want to share it with anyone who is interested. I will use my soapbox to tell you about the joys, the freedom, the benefits, and, yes, the challenges of bicycling and walking for transportation.

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.
