One of the murals in town has been painted over.

It was very sudden - on Sunday I was taking a walk down a local trail and saw it. On Tuesday afternoon, I walked by the same place, and there was nothing. Just a gray fence.

Given the mural's location (next to an apartment complex,) the timing, and the speed of the repaint, I can only assume that Pokemon Go had something to do with it. The mural was a gym, and I imagine that the apartment's owners didn't like the people who kept walking by and possibly loitering to fight at the gym. (It's still on the map, of course. I'm sure the process to be removed is more complicated than that.)

Still. I'm not sure how to feel about this. I do think that the game creators made a mistake by not making pokestops and gym locations opt-in instead of opt-out, though, since that at least seems to be the case.
