Cats seem to be conquering the world if this snapshot of Google Maps is to be believed.
This is no computer glitch in the depiction of Hobson bay in Auckland but a prank by anonymous hacker.
Google’s head of communications in New Zealand, Annie Baxter, told Stuff.co.nz:
‘We were aware that cats were trying to take over YouTube, but we didn’t realise it was extending to Google Maps.
‘We’re looking into this.’
While you cannot erase major landmarks, people can add cycle and footpaths.
However, these changes are meant to be user reviewed before they become officially part of the map.
Someone alleging to be a friend of the perpetrator spoke of the act: ‘My friend was the person that did this.
‘He started with a cat, and then added bits to it each day (like a collar, whiskers etc).’
Would be quite interesting to see more animals be drawn in different places all over the world on the map.
