Google Street View kills Bambi

A deer got killed by the Google Street View car. Google have removed (map location) the images but you can see the images right here below.

Google have since explained the incident:

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.

We’re sad that this accident occurred and we consider ourselves fortunate that our driver was not injured.
