It Appears That When Google Street View Passes,

to ensure anonymity faces are blurred,

this scene was recorded by Google Street View in 2015 in Cambridge, England, as you can see, a cow was crossing the walking path to graze on the riverbank, but her friends won’t be able to rib her about it because her face has been blurred for privacy, when this was pointed out, Google told NPR, '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,’ but the scheme wasn’t totally carried out, if you check the Street View scene embedded at NPR, you can look at the cow from the other direction and see her face clearly, oops! still all is not lost, the cow can request additional blurring any time she wants to.
