Goddam Google. We want to hate them for their domineering corporate ways, data-harvesting and for the simple reason that they're richer than you or I ever will be, but they've also thrown some of the best technologies in the world into our hands for free. One of these is Street View, which is as useful as it is reviled.
Its relentless pursuit to stick its all-seeing 360-degree camera where it's not welcome has ruffled plenty of feathers in the past, causing the internet giant to be on the receiving end of a fair few lawsuits. But for all the people Street View has angered, it's caused millions more of us to be entertained, shocked and confused by the strange things it's spotted over the years.
Looking at some of these images, you can see how people - and tigers - would hate it, but that doesn't stop them from being extremely amusing for us to ogle.
15. Tiger In A Car Park
Not even a tiger going for an afternoon stroll in the sun can get away from Street View's cameras. Sure, you can ask what the hell a tiger is doing walking around a car park in Colorado, but would you want to be questioned about your every movement when you're out at your local shops?
Besides, it's quite clear that the tiger in question is following that arrow marking on floor, who knows where to... Also, credit to Google where it's due. At least they blurred out the tiger's face to keep it anonymous.
