In New York, in January 2009, a Google street view car hit a baby deer on Five Points Road and then recorded the whole thing on thier Google Maps. Nobody noticed it until The Daily What posted an article attracting huge traffic, and then a sequence of five street-level pictures being removed from Google maps.

See couple of pictures below. Its terrifying.

Later Google replied

“The driver was understandably upset, and promptly stopped to alert the local police and the Street View team at Google. The deer was able to move and had left the area by the time the police arrived. The police explained to our driver that, sadly, this was not an uncommon occurrence in the region – the New York State Department of Transportation estimates that 60,000-70,000 deer collisions happen per year in New York alone and no police report needed to be filed.”

What to say!!
