Those Google street-map cars roaming the worldâ€™s avenues have done more than take pictures. In Chile, theyâ€™ve apparently killed a dog.
The animal-welfare group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals posted a pair of photos on its PETA Latino blog showing a small, short-haired dog dashing across a street in Santiago, Chile, and then in the second photo lying motionless on the pavement, apparently hit by the Google car that PETA says took the photos.
In honor of the apparently deceased canine, PETA is asking Google to match its $1,000 donation to a Chilean spay-and-neuter group called the RIMA Foundation.
Google could not be reached for comment Friday afternoon.
