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
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.
