PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Google will stop at nothing to protect identities of those seen on Street View…even if those seen are cows.

A spokesman for Google told BBC that the act of privacy over-protection was due to an overactive automated system.
“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,” the statement reportedly read.
