Suicide dogs in Parque España

A tragic story is told, in Rosario, about Parque España. Something mysterious makes dozens of dogs committed suicide there.

As we are

Parque España is  one of the most beautiful walks  in  Rosario . Its ideal location, meters from the historic center and, in turn, on the waterfront, make it one of the most chosen places for rosarinos to drink  mate , exercise, enjoy the coastal landscape, stroll in family and with pets. But, precisely in relation to dogs, there is  a  tragic legend   that surrounds the property in mystery.

There is a corner of the complex that looks like a giant terrace, which overlooks one of the courtyards of the  cultural complex . It is known as the Patio de los Cipresses. That is the very scene of the tragedy.

For  some mysterious reason , dogs run up to that sector, jump the railing and throw themselves into the vacuum. Few, usually if they are small, manage to save themselves. It's several meters high, in an unusual jump to an almost certain  death  .

 Since always 

Parque España  was inaugurated in 1992 . Since then there are records of this macabre canine habit. Cases took media notoriety because, although dogs did not die every day, accidents were frequent.

But the phenomenon seems to be a spasmodic medium. Every while,  there are like waves of canine suicides  in the park. A few years ago several cases were reported, again, with messages on  social networks  of people who told the tragic endings of their  pets .

 No one ever gave  an exact explanation of what awakens in the dogs that instinct to jump into the void. The closest thing to a scientific version is the theory that proximity to the river brings a certain sound, perhaps imperceptible to the human ear, which causes some inevitable attraction in poor animals. Others draw a certain similarity in a case of a  Scottish bridge .

In recent times there has been no news, at least known, that the suicides corner has claimed new victims. But the legend,  the tragic story of Rosario's suicide dogs  , is there, in Parque España.
