                         Bovine Bingo

The small Swiss town of Beckenried, on Lake Lucerne, has invented
the world's first game of ecological bingo: Dung Lotto. Up to three
cows wander around in a field divided into 2,000 squares, and players
have to guess on which one the first cow pat will drop. In the inaug-
ural game the Sfr3,500 ($2,500) top prize was won after 13 minutes
with a direct hit on square 1,346.
