Overtoun Bridge

On the property of the Overtoun House, a 19th century manor in Scottland, lies a bridge with a very morbid history, specifically with mans’ best friend. Studies have shown that numerous dogs have jumped off of the bridge since the 1950s. Dogs that survived the jump would even attempt it a second time if taken to the bridge again. The only similarities in the events were that the dogs mostly jumped from the same side of the bridge on a clear day, and most dogs were long-snouted breeds.

The manor on the property has been repurposed for many things, such as a maternity hospital and a Christian Centre. Although the story is mostly based around the bridge, many people believe that the property itself is haunted. There have been reports of people seeing a victorian woman roaming the house, but since most of the stories are overshadowed by the bridge, they’re kind of hard to find.

Although many people believe that there are paranormal causes behind this phenomenon, scientists believe that there is a logical (but not 100% proven) explanation for it. After a few tests with like-breed dogs, it was concluded that the scent of mink urine might be the cause.
