Since the 1960s, dogs have been jumping off on a bridge near Overtoun House in south-west Scotland to their deaths at a supposed rate of nearly one per month. Why? Well, no one knows. Theories about the cause of these bizarre occurrences abound, with no one able to provide a definitive answer as to what is causing the strange dog deaths.
Overtoun House was built in the nineteenth century and given to the people of the local area in the will of Lord Overtoun in 1939, under the conditions that it not be used for “controversial meetings, noxious practices, or drinking”. But this has not prevented canine suicide. Since the war, the house has been used by the British military, as a maternity hospital and as a government experiment facility.
Most recently, and slightly ironically for the canines, it has been a Centre for Hope and Healing.
The area has long been thought to be haunted, and in 1994 a father threw his child off the bridge, claiming the infant to be the Anti-Christ before himself attempting to jump off the bridge. In fact, the sinister background of Overtoun can be traced directly back to Celtic mythology: it is said to inhabit an area of Scotland which is “thin”, i.e. where our world crosses with that of heaven, allowing spirits to cross over into our Earthly domain.
