Overtoun Bridge was built in the 1800s in West Dunbartonshire, Scotland. Beautiful and charming place, isn't it? Well, not such a charming history. You see, over the decades an enormous number of dogs have leaped to their deaths.
Apparently, since the 1950s, dogs have been leaping off the bridge and dying at the rate of - get this - one a month. A few dogs have survived and gone back to jump yet again!
When observing the incidents, they realized that the dogs generally jumped off one side of the bridge, on a clear day, and all the dogs had long snouts. They later had a dog expert examine the conditions and came to the conclusion, through a series of tests, that the dogs were drawn there by the strong scent of mink urine.
