There’s a neighborhood on high alert because a pack wild animals has taken over.

Stray Chihuahuas are on the loose in this part of Phoenix.

Some have been chasing children home from school.

Animal control is actually asking people to lead the dogs into their yards, so they can be collected.

Officials say most of the dogs were left behind after their owners lost their homes to foreclosure.

Chihuahuas are one of the most popular breeds at their shelters.
