(BBC) – A bullock that 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, UK, 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.
