Found Overtoun Bridge - Bridge canine suicides
Venue - Scotland, the administrative center of Dumbarton, near the village of Milton Manor Overtoun. In 1859 a certain James White was bought territory near the said village and built the castle. It took three years to build it, then there is accommodated a family of Wight. In 1884 the first owners moved into another world, and their place was taken by the grateful descendants. Son James fussed about inheritance augmentation, which negotiated with the local pastor. As a consequence - on the territory of the church separated some part of the estate and added to the Whites. And because the new land separated from the old waterfall with the river, the culprit had to build future canine suicides - Overtoun Bridge. Against this background of ends and the story begins.
It was after the construction of the bridge repeatedly passed from hand to hand until it was at the municipal, and today there are courses of education, support and other social programs. But the bridge - he obviously does not fit the profile of a handsome institution. The first case of canine suicide was recorded in 1951, by 1955 there were more than 48 such cases, with a passion for flying were more likely dlinnomordye breed. For most dogs fall ended tragically (15 meters high), but surprisingly different - some of the surviving animals after recovery again came to the bridge to finish the job. This fact recall the utter surprise of Milton residents, because it is known that dogs differ in a strong instinct of self-preservation and well-remembered places personal tragedies. Another interesting fact - jumping dog not somehow or anyhow from: a favorite place for jumps - between the last two spans on the right side, where our four-legged friends rush upside down and nothing else. The locals immediately christened the bridge cursed and began to get his side.
Babbitt - nature is thin and responsive to all chernushny dregs. As soon as the news of the suicide spread dog around the neighborhood, once the legend of his father, allegedly reset his infant child from the bridge, on the pretext that the child is the work of the devil. According to legend, a few days later his father committed suicide in the same way in the same place. And now, he says the inhabitant, the spirit of innocent victims of the child is spoiled by the dogs, calling on them to jump off a bridge, and small animals, not suspecting a trick, give in to provocations.
"The Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals," could not help but pay attention to Overtounskuyu anomaly and to send representatives to inspect the bridge, a waterfall and the whole district. Representatives have done everything according to the procedure, but found nothing. However, to report to his superiors about the spirits and otherworldly nonsense no one really did not want to, so representatives continued to explore the area until they found mink innocuous who settled on the slopes of the river near the bridge. Representatives advanced version: mink have such a strong smell that brought dogs to suicide. More precisely, they lead to accidents - dog, sensing the smell, feel that Mink close pop-up on the rail, slips and falls down. Version pro minks have checked with many dogs who are indeed more favorable to their smell than others. This was shown in the statement of Representatives and is currently the official version of the dog on the bridge suicides Overtoun. Both versions seem improbable, must wait until another arrives any commission and finally finds the truth, as long as put an end to this story early. Dogs after jumping today. In 1994, a terrible bridge took the first human life: senile father dropped him with her child, and then he went after her.
