TORONTO (NBC) - That monkey in the window is not for sale this Christmas; in fact, you could say he was a shopper.

A monkey dressed in a winter coat was spotted in parking lot outside an Ikea in Toronto.

Police said the seven-month-old monkey escaped from its crate and also managed to get out of his owner's car.

At first shoppers thought the monkey was fake, but quickly learned otherwise as it began running around.

The owner has been now been fined for illegally owning an exotic animal.
