Google Denies Killing Donkey with Maps Car




The image shows a donkey in a peculiar position.

Search engine giant Google has strenuously denied reports that one of its Google Street View cars ran over and killed a donkey in Botswana.

Earlier in the day outraged netizens kicked up a huge row on social networking sites condemning Google for causing harm to the animal. The allegations first emerged when alert people spotted a Google Street View image of what looked like a seriously injured or even dead donkey ahead or behind of a Google car.

A Google spokesperson denied the rumours, saying: "Our Street View teams take the safety of people and donkeys very seriously."

Other people have theorised that the donkey is just rolling around scratching an itch. I recall even my dog used to do this sometimes.

Google sent News.com.au internal Street View images but did not give permission for them to be published. Some images were released and they show the donkey getting up and standing after the car left Did Google run over a donkey in Botswana? (No, it's just walking backwards) | Information, Gadgets, Mobile Phones News & Reviews | News.com.au

However the photos are not making much sense and questions about the validity of the photos still remain. More news regarding the donkeys health is awaited.

Happier times - Donkey and trumpet

Re: Google Denies Killing Donkey with Maps Car

Serves the donkey right for using Apple Maps to find its way. This should happen to all the other donkeys who purchase Apple products just because "Apple made it".

God help the Poor Donkey. ..
- Wish him a speedy recovery if he is injured
- May God rest his Soul if he is dead
- May he find a good Vet to treat him if he has itching problem.

Animals get run over all the time?
Unless that was the Holy Donkey of Badlanabad in which case they should be sorry.

No no no, intolerance will not be met with dancing cows and huei-wei eggs as well as a gala encore for the inebriates present who are at various stages of drunkenness
