I'm not sure if this is a science or a supernatural story.
I'll put this in science for now however I do wonder if
there is a supernatural reason for this. But first, the
logical and scientific reasons have to be explored before
jumping to the supernatural.

Mystery of canine ‘suicides’ at eerie bridge
ALAN MACDERMID


The ancient burgh has had its ups and downs. Being turned into a corner
of Glasgow by the makers of River City may have been the last straw.
But can it have affected Dumbarton so badly that even the dogs have lost the will to live?

Animal experts admitted yesterday they had no explanation for a spate of
what appear to be canine suicides – all from the same spot. At least five
dogs have jumped to their deaths from a bridge over a burn at Overtoun
House in the past six months.

In the most recent case, a woman out walking her dog watched in
disbelief as her pet suddenly vaulted over the parapet and plunged
40ft to its death.

The bridge attracts visitors and dog-walkers, but it already has an
eerie past. It was the home of Lord Overtoun, owner of a huge
chemical works and pillar of the Free Church, and was the location
for a BBC TV series Tales from the Madhouse.

But neither the dogs' shocked owners nor animal behavioural
experts have been able to explain why the pets have turned
the beauty spot into Rover's Leap.

Ok I'll bite (lol) on this one.
That is really strange. It's been noted that animals have intuition i.e detecting seizures before they happen or certain cancers or alerting people to fires and such. Maybe this place is so depressing or ominous that the dogs feel it although jumping to their death is really the kicker. It sounds like an evil spot.

Great find!!


This is fascinating!! Do you think you could find a picture of this place? The article mentioned one dog plunging 40 feet. It has got to be more than that. It seems some dogs would have survived that. But then again, perhaps it's the rocks that they land on.

Could also depend on the breed. Not all dogs can swim. If they're landing in the water and can't swim or are unable to surface, or just don't want to, then that could be why. It may have nothing to do with the height of the fall itself.

This is definitely a very strange story, and it smells of something evil. I certainly wouldn't take any of my dogs to a place like that. Sounds like something supernatural is luring them off the bridge....
