Leading Animal Behaviourist, Dr David Sands, investigates the Scottish Suicide Bridge at Overtoun to help research and understand why dogs were being recorded as leaping to their death. This is an 'edit taster' for the documentary. Please note many aspects were researched. Dr Sands knows dog do not commit suicide. The combination of a dog's natural curiosity, scent, sounds, owner family-cues (looking over bridge), topography (pathway over bridge changing from level ground to gorge) and sight-inhibited by high-stone walls. Dr Sands is aware that such accidental falls made by dogs will have and continue to occur at other structures world-wide. PLEASE NOTE - THIS IS NOT THE FULL DOCUMENTARY. It is a myth that dogs immediately try to jump again! Sorry about the baby sound at the start.... See the further clip on this Channel to see where Dr Sands filmed for Animal Planet Channel, Wild X Files. A new film is being made for the Unexplained Files, Discovery Channel (2013/2014)
