    An image displayed on Google Street View from Kweneng, Botswana, is interpreted by some as showing a donkey that had been struck by the Google vehicle. (Google / January 15, 2013)

    A scene captured by a Google Street View vehicle in Kweneng, Botswana, that went viral Monday seems to show the car hitting and possibly killing a donkey on the road.
    The scene is still visible on Google Street View: The Google vehicle appears to come up upon a standing donkey before knocking it over.
    But Google has a different version of the incident and insists the animal is fine.
    "Our Street View teams take the safety of people and donkeys very seriously," Google said in a statement. "A review of our imagery confirms that we did not cause any harm to the donkey."
