Yay for pagan holidays~

In the spirit of Halloween, I'm going to post creepy stuff.
First is the story of Jatinga, an Indian village that has quite a peculiar tourist attraction. Every year between September and October, the village is greeted with an onslaught of migratory birds that commit suicide (they just ram themselves into the ground at full force). The creepiest part is that the birds are extremely precise about their group suicide. It always occurs between 7 and 10 p.m. and only around a specific mile-long, 200-yard-wide strip of land. The process has gone on like clockwork for roughly the past 100 years, with over 44 different species of birds. Science has yet to fully explain it.
Then there's the Aokigahara forest in Japan, which has been the site for over 500 suicides in the past 50 years. The forest is so thick in places that it can blot out the sun all day, making for some of the most perfect places to hang yourself without people finding you for days. There's is an estimated one suicide a day (or more), and in a one day sweep police found 78 bodies hanging off of trees.
Over in Scotland there's the Overtoun Bridge, where dogs have committed suicide. Over 600 of them since the 1960s! Nobody knows why, and it's not like there's no guard rails... the dogs just literally jump over the walls and kill themselves. There have even been witnesses who have seen dogs that survive the jump and then immediately run up to the bridge again and jump off it until the fall finally kills them. Ironically, no human have died on this bridge.
