Well, he's... he's, ah... probably pining for the fjords.

That's one way to get some ass with Google. I thought most people prefer FB/Craigslist for that sort of activity.

Google doesn't take even the most basic of precautions to make sure this type of thing doesn't happen. They do not post routes or schedules, just showing up at any random time and catching the locals unawares.

This mule didn't stand a chance. How could it have known the Google death van was coming to call that day?

Google says "don't be evil" but they've proven time and again that these are just meaningless words to them.

I hit an owl in northern Australia. That's right, I managed to hit and owl. These things happen.

The problem with this version of events is that - based on the images - it appears as though the donkey is walking backwards.

...for Christmas

That donkey could very well be rolling in the dirt. They do that quite often and the dry sandy dirt on that road looks like the perfect spot to roll, well if you are a donkey anyway. Without seeing the full sequence of photos it's hard to tell one way or the other.

God, just what we need, a Truther movement for a donkey.

Also, when the donkey allegedly "got up", there was no dirt impression left in the middle of the road. Also missing were footprints.

Same kind of evidence that proves the moon landing was a hoax.

This donkey was previously used to run drugs for a powerful African warlord who allegedly used to supply Rupert Murdoch's son. He's the son of a donkey who got caught transporting 30 kilos across the Mexican border in a tunnel that went below George W. Bush's ranch. George W. Bush ince used Google to look up "yellow cake". Connect the dots, people.

 Botswana is actually pretty cool.

As far as African countries go, it's one of the better ones.

Botswanans drive on the left side of the road. The donkey was laying in the road before the car arrived, then jumped up as it approached. All the assumptions about the pictures seem to presumed right-side driving.
Not a story.

Having learnt to drive on a road like that, quite possibly that road, you drive on the side that is smoothest and you go to the left side when you see someone else coming, which you can see from a long way away because of the dust cloud. That said, it looks from the lack of dust, that the google car is going quite slow, and on the left, so I think you are correct. Lekowa did not hit the donkey.

Or they could, you know, post the entire sequence of images instead of their creative omission:

I posit the above sequence is chronologically correct and it's just a donkey laying in the dirt that moves out of the way of an oncoming car. However, I will concede that an alternative featuring a dead donkey does exist: the donkey saw the car coming, waited until it was positioned directly to the side of the car, and decided at the last minute to use its teleportation powers to transport itself in front of the car. The driver, completely unaware of donkeys with teleportation abilities, was caught off guard and struck the donkey. The donkey then positioned itself directly behind the car for comedic effect or the car went directly over said donkey without causing any visible signs of trauma to the donkey or destroying the vehicle

As a bonus, add in the fact that the direction of travel is immediately apparent in most of the shots since dust is only being kicked up behind the vehicle (hint: it's driving on the left). What we have here is intentional link-baiting by generating outrage from a non-story. AKA fox news style reporting.

I'm still trying to figure out who was looking at a dirt road in Botswana to FIND these images!

How many hours of trolling does one have to perform to find these obscure roadkill shots?

Poor Francis.

They shouldn't put the donkey crossing there if they know there will vehicle traffic.
