Assigning Copyright for Selfie on a Stolen Phone

Just a little conundrum from the land of copyright for you today. Once upon a time, a monkey stole a nature photographer's camera and took a bunch of pictures of himself. Today, said photographer believes that the copyright for the picture should be his. Wikipedia disagrees believing the photograph was taken by the monkey and is therefore public domain (on the grounds that the monkey can't claim copyright).

Seriously.
