Mr Rosenblum's Dorset wooly-pig

I recently read and reviewed
Mr Rosenblum’s List
(or Friendly Guidance for the Aspiring Englishman) by Natasha Solomons and the paperback has just arrived.
Part of the fun in the book is when Mr Rosenblum, under the influence of rather too much home made cider, gets a fleeting glimpse of the mythical(?) Dorset wooly-pig. Naturally I assumed that such a creature was as likely as, say, a computer literate gorilla. However, thanks to Mr Stephen Holmes I have been put right. The photo here shows one of the Dorset wooly-pig's close relations The Cumberland Pig. Isn't it amazing what you can learn over the counter of a bookshop!

Now where have I read about a computer literate gorilla?
