Darwin Ikea Monkey

December 20, 2012 by  

Darwin Ikea Monkey, Yasmin Nakhuda alleges the Japanese macaque, named Darwin, was illegally taken from her by animal control officials and moved to a sanctuary in Sunderland, Ontario, where he now lives.

Ms Nakhuda is due in court today to try to get an interim order to have Darwin returned to her.

Her lawyer, Ted Charney, says he has been told the sanctuary plans to ask for the case to be adjourned.

“Nakhuda has no claim of ownership over a wild animal that is no longer in her possession,” the sanctuary said in its response to her filing to have Darwin returned.

The sanctuary also claims that it now owns Darwin, arguing that unlike domestic animals, wild animals are owned by the person that possesses them and Miss Nakhuda voluntarily turned the monkey over to Toronto Animal Services.
