Google Street View blurs bullock’s face

The animal was snapped by Google’s cameras at Coe Fen, Cambridge, and seemingly given the same treatment humans receive for privacy reasons.A tweet by The Guardian’s David Shariatmadari highlighting the sight was retweeted more than 9,000 times. Google admitted its face-blurring technology had been “a little overzealous”.

The animal’s face can clearly be seen grazing near the river River Cam on an image taken slightly further away, but Google seems to have blurred it for a close-up view.

A spokesman for Google said: “We thought you were pulling the udder one when we herd the moos, but it’s clear that our automatic face-blurring technology has been a little overzealous.
