Computer Games Not Just for People

Bushka loves her computer game, which is of the joystick and target type. She plays it a lot, and with much skill. As a result of Bushka's enthusiasm, Grenville Owen, of Kings Norton in Birmingham, has given her a computer.

Bushka is a pot-bellied pig.

According to a mid-March 2000 report from London, Owen, Bushka's owner, is coming up with a virtual-assault-course game to stimulate Bushka's considerable thought processes even more.

The brief report did not indicate how the pig manipulates the joystick, but it is probable that she uses her nose a lot.
