It could be from the WTF file.

Instead, it’s more like the “you can’t make this shit up” file. From RT:

‘Overzealous’ Google Street View blurs cow’s face to protect its privacy

Google Street View obscures the faces of people and license plates to protect privacy. But when it was revealed that it had blurred the muzzle of a cow from Cambridge, it made the animal an online celeb.

The cow with a blurred muzzle was discovered online by the Guardian paper’s American opinion editor, David Shariatmadari.

The picture, which quickly went viral and was retweeted over 14,000 times, was taken at Coe Fen, Cambridge in the UK last August.

It showed a large black cow peacefully eating grass on the bank of the Cam River.

A Google spokesman confirmed to the BBC that the company’s face-blurring technology has been “a little overzealous.”

“Of course, we don’t begrudge this cow milking its five minutes of fame,” he added.

The picture has led to a wave of humorous comments online as users mock Google’s seriousness towards animal privacy.

Thankfully the cow was not hijacked by ISIS in England nor used in the making of pornos for the French. His name allegedly was Fred and he was a Virgo. Possibly a transgender Female-To-Male heifer.

Now? Its just hot and tender and tastes good with A-1:
