A hacker drew a picture of a giant cat on Google Maps, in Hobson Bay, Auckland in New Zealand.
The anonymous hacker made the picture of a cat appear as part of the land. It was thought to be difficult to remove as the location is classed a major landmark. But it no longer appears when you search the location.
It’s unknown how the hacker managed to add it as any changes are supposed to be reviewed and approved first.
Googleâ€™s head of communications in New Zealand, Annie Baxter, tells Stuff.co.nz, â€œWe were aware that cats were trying to take over YouTube, but we didnâ€™t realize it was extending to Google Maps.â€
Although the prankster is unknown, someone has come forward claiming to be their friend, and has said, â€œMy friend was the person that did this. â€˜He started with a cat, and then added bits to it each day (like a collar, whiskers etc).â€
