A photo from Google's Street View in Botswana went viral after one Twitter user raised concerns about a donkey lying in the middle of a dirt road.

As netizens dissected the Street View images, the online debate prompted Google to deny allegations that the donkey was hurt.

Google's Street View has recently expanded to include countries and territories around the world, coming to Botswana last February.
