Dog Leaps From Overpass
Status: Possible canine suicide?
Charles G. Jetchick was driving along, minding his own business, when suddenly a dog crashed through his window. It had fallen from an overpass. Police don't think it was thrown. Instead, they speculate the dog fell by accident while trying to avoid a car. The police officer commented: ""We've had rocks and other stuff like that fall off of overpasses. This would be the first dog we've had." The Anomalist, however, speculates that it might be another case of canine suicide... because like spontaneous human combustion, spontaneous canine suicide can strike at any time.

Anybody ever think that maybe it's just that the dog didn't (or couldn't) jump as far as the stick was thrown...

The driver of the car died. I just read this on a news website...

I had an unhappy encounter with a suicidal teenage bunny a while ago.
Poor thing had just had enough and ran right out in front of my car.

Darn it. I saw this yesterday and thought of the canine suicide thing.
