[ स्कॉटलैंड में ओवरटॉन ब्रिज ]
Dainik Bhaskar Bureau,
The earth is full of mysterious places. There are some places where not everyone can go. But today we are going to tell you about a mysterious bridge in the world, where dogs commit suicide as soon as they cross. Till now, more than 600 dogs have committed suicide by jumping from this bridge. Till date no one has been able to find its secret. Let us know about this place…
This bridge is in Dumbarton, Scotland. Its name is Overton Bridge. It was constructed in 1859. But for the first time in the 1950s and 1960s, it was noticed that dogs come here and commit suicide. This bridge is a suicide bridge for dogs. Till now there are more than 600 such cases in which dogs committed suicide by jumping 50 feet from this bridge. It is an unsolved mystery why dogs jump from this bridge. It is said that in October 1994, a man killed his infant child by throwing it off this bridge because he believed that his son was the incarnation of Satan. Then that person tried to commit suicide several times. First by jumping from the bridge, later by cutting his wrist. According to local people, dogs see the ghost of that child and jump in fear.
The world of living and dead people meet here –
It is said that even after falling from the bridge once, if the dog somehow survives, then it kills itself by jumping off the bridge again. After a series of dogs committing suicide, a warning board has been installed on the bridge. The surprising thing is that all the dogs that committed suicide were mysterious. All the deaths occurred on the same side of the Overton Bridge. According to another theory, Overton Bridge is a place where the worlds of the living and the dead meet and sometimes some powers also cross. It is believed that dogs can feel things that cannot be seen very well.
Expert has a different claim –
Experts reject these claims. According to them, there is a strong smell on the bridge which is a combination of the urine of male minks (animal) and the smell of pine martens (animal). It excites dogs to hunt. It excites so much that the dogs go mad and jump from the bridge. However, a local hunter says there are no mink in the area. This has made this mystery even deeper. What’s even more strange is that the dogs jump only from one side of the bridge, never from the other side. All dogs jump when it’s sunny. If it was cloudy then such an incident would not have happened, why? This is one of the scariest mysteries in the world.
