For the most part, Google Street View is good about protecting the privacy of those stray humans among us who just happen to be around when the funny Google car drives through. Providing panoramic views of the area, it could definitely pose a risk to people not wanting to broadcast sensitive information to anyone accessing Google maps.
In the case of the blurry-faced cow, it was Guardian's David Shariatamadari who first noticed Google's silent advocacy of cow rights (as seen above). He tweeted his findings and has since gotten nearly 13,000 retweets and over 16,000 likes.
When the BBC addressed Google about the cow, Google responded with a punny comment:
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. Of course, we don't begrudge this cow milking its five minutes of fame.
