A MUM­MI­FIED mon­key has been found in the air ducts of a for­mer depart­ment store in Min­neapo­lis.

The re­mains were dis­cov­ered in an air vent of what used to be the flag­ship store for the Day­ton’s depart­ment store chain, which was owned by Min­nesota Gov­er­nor Mark Day­ton’s fam­ily.

Mr Day­ton said one of the floors was trans­formed into a rain­for­est dis­play in the 1960s, com­plete with live mon­keys and birds.

He said one mon­key got loose and scur­ried into an air duct. It was not seen again.
