Stray packs of Chihuahuas have taken over the streets of one Arizona town, striking fear into the hearts of its residents with their jagged teeth and high-pitched yelps.

Animal control has been doing their best to handle the situation in Maryvale, a town in Phoenix, but the little rat dogs have proven to be a formidable force.

“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,” said Melissa Gable with Maricopa County Animal Care and Control.

”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.”

This of course begs the question: Who let the dogs out?
