In the picturesque Swiss village of Soustal the locals are worried.


Dozens of alpine cows appear to be committing suicide by throwing themselves off a cliff near the village in the Alps.


In the space of three days 28 cows and bulls have mysteriously died in the district of Lauterbrunnen in the Swiss Alps.

All of the animals died after they plunged hundreds of metres to rocks below where they were killed instantly.

In each case local mountain rescue services using a helicopter had to be called in to remove the bodies because of the danger to the local groundwater of pollution.

A police spokesman said: 'There are no large carnivores living in the Alps anymore who would once have disposed of the bodies so they have to be moved.


'We are investigating because cows growing up in the mountains normally can estimate dangers and do not plunge down cliffs.'
