Satan with four legs, aka, tiny chihuahuas are causing chaos in the Phoenix suburb of Maryvale, Arizona. Alongside their mega poop parties, furious lip licking orgies, and chasing school children, the humans over at animal control fear their rapid reproduction tactics.
This year, over 6,000 calls were made to animal control concerning the wild little hellions.
“We compared the number of calls we got in 2013 from that area to similar areas in town and the calls from Maryvale were three times higher than surrounding areas,” Melissa Gable of the Maricopa County Animal Care and Control told ABC11.
Gable said it was due to the bitches looking for sex: “Part of it is these animals aren’t spayed or neutered, so they’re out looking for a mate and are having babies, which also contributes to the problem.”
The strays roam around in large packs, swelling the streets, and chasing Maryvale children as they walk to school.
“I seen six or seven Chihuahuas … and big dogs running with the Chihuahua’s in a pack running every single day,” Frank Garcia told Fox News.
Often times, the chihuahuas join forces with other bigger, stray dogs rolling in packs as large as 15, and creating a rag tag team of canine ferocity that strike fear in the hearts of locals.
Maryvale resident Ray Rios told Fox News, “Yeah a lot of them they are out here chasing kids or going yard to yard … anywhere in groups of eight to twelve just running around.”
Animal control is offering a hand in their services towards neutering for free. They have called upon residents to safely capture any of the dogs until they’re combed out.
“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,” Gable told ABC.
