Google prove that they did not kill the donkey in Botswana

Some time ago the Google Company published their explanations concerning the donkey that was noticed on pictures in Botswana (link). The company conducted an investigation and found the archive of pictures of this African country. 

Employees of Google Maps found a few more pictures and established the chronology of events. You can see that in the first few pictures the Street View car approaches the donkey that lies at the strip of the road.

But the next picture shows that the equine is on the curb already.

In the end, the donkey stares at the car with curiosity. It is obvious that it is alive.

As a working hypothesis, the employees of Google assumed that the donkey was taking a dust bath, as they often do. In the interface of the Street View the pictures are glued in such way that the users get an opinion that the donkey was hit by a car.

The animal that was lying on the road was noticed on the 14 of January by the so called “real Sheldon Cooper” who published this link on his Twitter page with 149 followers. In the social media rose a real wave of indignation which made the Google Company conduct an investigation.
