Google Maps has now blacked out images of one its vehicles apparently hitting and killing a baby deer on a rural road in the United States.
As users followed the street view scene down Five Points Road in Rush, New York, they were able to see the deer running out in front of the car.
It then appeared to be hit by the vehicle. Another shot shows the fawn lying on the side of the road.

An insider at Google said the images were removed after several requests from users using the Street View image removal option
Another Google employee said: "The driver was understandably upset, and promptly stopped to alert the local police and the Street View team at Google."
