    The anonymous cow on Google View

    A cow which had its face blurred by Google street view has proved a hit on social media.
    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".
    Bovine anomaly
    The cow'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.

    We are so lucky to have such caring people invading our privacy...

    (Although I have seen a man walking his dog on Google Street View; the man and dog were both facially blurred! I did not tweet this 'anomaly' though.)

    I believe it's a steer, not a cow (in keeping with this forum's penchant for anorak).
    There are two sides to every story. The truth is usually somewhere between the two.

      I believed it to be a bull, not a cow, but all the reports I read didn't agree.

        It's all good. Probably.
