Stray chihuahuas travelling in packs terrorising town

An overpopulation of chihuahuas is causing havoc in an Arizona town. Maricopa County Animal Care and Control has said it received 6,000 calls from concerned Maryvale residents last year, reporting out-of-control chihuahuas being a nuisance on their streets. Locals say that the children are being chased on their way to school, while dog mess is being left all over the pavements.

Maryvale resident Ray Rios told Fox News: ‘They are out here chasing kids or going yard to yard… anywhere in groups of eight to 12 just running around.’ However, because it is so busy, the animal control centre said it needs help to restrain them. ‘If at all possible, if you see a stray, if you can safely contain him in your yard and then call us – that makes a big difference,’ Melissa Gable told ABC News. ‘Because what’s happening is people are calling saying, “hey I see a stray” by the time we get there, it’s long gone.’

Officials are also giving advice to avoid the roaming packs being replicated in another area – neuter your dogs and keep them on a leash.
