Google released a statement today denying its mapping team ran over and killed a donkey in Botswana.
Social media sites were abuzz over the past 2 days with claims that a Google Street View vehicle ran over -- and possibly even killed -- a donkey in Botswana’s Kweneng region.
The sequence upon clicking the link to Google Maps indeed begins with the donkey in the distance, appearing to come towards the camera on the side of the road.
When the camera moves past the donkey, if the street map user rotates the angle to look back at the donkey, you can clearly see it lying on the ground on its side.
Kawai says the opposite of what people are claiming occurred: the donkey was lying in the path as the Street View vehicle approached it. Kawai says the donkey may, in fact, have been “enjoying a dust bath” -- and that it moved safely aside as their car moved past it.
The problem, he suggests, is that people were viewing the images in the wrong order.
Those with doubts may be assuaged with this image taken of the donkey, taken off the side of the car, which shows it's alive and well.
