Google Maps footage has a habit of highlighting unbelievable scenarios around the world.
Because it offers an insight into different countries, we often see things that are uncommon in our local area.
A viral image highlighting a horse manure sale in New Zealand is a prime example of this.
It seems someone is trying to flog their horse’s manure for profit – something many wouldn’t think to try.
The footage shows a small wheelbarrows packed with bags of horse manure.
A sign says: “Horse poo 4 sale: 1 bag” – above at least six bags of it.
Panning around, it is clear the bags are placed at the side of a national speed limit road.
You might imagine it has limited scope for stopping traffic – unless anyone is desperate for a bag of poo.
However, if you think about it, the horse excrement may be good for farming.
While this sale may well be a prank, it’s equally likely the dung may be used as manure – especially considering New Zealand’s fertile land, which makes it a popular farming region.
Whether it’s a legitimate sale or not, it does seem to be going to a good cause.
A small note on the bottom of the sign reads “Proceeds to SPCA”, aka the New Zealand Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
Google Maps footage also catches people around the world experiencing embarrassing moments.
One of these is a female motorcyclist in East Java, Indonesia.
The unfortunate woman was pictured falling off her motorbike in the footage.
Staff at Google Maps have since blurred the woman out to keep her dignity.
