"Gathering ground-level images for Google's voyeuristic Street View application one of the search giant's mobile camera cars hit and killed a baby deer while snapping on a rural road in upstate New York.
"The incident was recorded on Google Maps (here), but has since been blacked out by Google.
"A sorry Google commented: `Gathering the imagery for Street View requires quite a bit of driving; as such, we take safety very seriously. Unfortunately, accidents do happen - as some people have noticed, one of our Street View cars hit a deer while driving on a rural road in upstate New York. Due to several user requests using the 'Report a concern' tool, these images are no longer available in Street View.`"
