Did Google kill a donkey in Kweneng?

Google Maps Street View activity in the Kweneng region of Botswana has generated controversy this week: did their equipment kill a donkey?

After a social media uproar, Google addressed the controversy on its Google Maps blog on Wednesday. In a post entitled “Never ass-ume,”  Kei Kawai, group product manager for Google Maps provided photographic evidence that the donkey got up and walked away after the above image was taken.

I can rest easier now, thanks to Google Earth Amazing Discoveries on Mashable.
