Canine suicide bridge

4 March 2005

Came across this from Neil Gaiman’s journal. A bridge in Scotland has been the site of apparent dog suicides, with animal behaviourists unsure of why the animals are leaping to their deaths. They are advising owners to put a lead on their pets while crossing the bridge.

“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.
