It looks like Google may be taking privacy to a whole new level after blurring the face of a young bull in Cambridge, UK.

The blurred image was discovered by David Shariatmadari, and quickly gained attention on Twitter after it was retweeted at least 12,000 times.

As of this post going live, the blurring face still existed on Google’s archive. We suspect they won’t be in any rush to update the image as the privacy of one young bull really isn’t on the top of their list of priorities.


Switching to different views reveals the animal’s face, so it’s safe to say this bull does not work for the CIA or KGB.
