The creepy sight was captured in a remote part of Tennessee, US.
The man spotted what appears to be a skinned and bloodied body of an unknown creature with two men standing over it.
The image was taken in a wooded area in the sparsely populated outskirts of Sevierville city.
While zooming out, a pickup truck with a third man can be seen in front of the other two men.
“He dropped the Google guy on Street View and saw this”
The creature appears to have its arms dangling by its side.
The image has been widely shared and generated numerous theories about the body’s origin.
A woman who posted the image on Twitter explained how her friend had stumbled across the image on Google Maps.
She said the friend had visited the area on work one day, but had found the place “scary”.

Later, he decided to explore the area online by punching in the address on Google Maps.
That’s when he stumbled across the chilling image.
The woman wrote: “My friend had to walk this stretch of road in rural Tennessee, knocking on doors to notify residents of work planned in the area.
“Later he was trying to describe how trashy and scary it was, so he dropped the Google guy on Street View and saw this.”
Reacting to the chilling image one user said: “Horrifying.”
While another added: “What IS that?”
But as another suggested it could have been a “dead body”, sceptics pointed to a much simpler explanation.
They said the body could have been the carcass of a pig or horse being loaded on to the waiting truck.
This isn’t the first Google Maps creepy discovery. Previously a “DEAD body” was spotted by users on Google Maps Street View in the back of a truck in Wilmington, North Carolina.
Police in Wilmington launched an investigation into the shocking pictures.
It however, turned out to be an Oscar – a US Coast Guard search-and-rescue dummy.
