    Google has denied killing a donkey while capturing images of Botswana for its Street View program.

    I've seen this yesterday, and I am inclined to believe that the donkey was rolling in the dust and then got up and out of the way of the car:

    I love El Reg's title: "Google denies smacking Botswanan ass".

    Also, my favourite comment to this story so far:

    Yeah, poor donkey, but how often do people hit animals with their cars? I see at least two new squished squirrels on campus every day. Just because Google does it, it's suddenly a huge deal? People can be so stupid..
