Phoenix has been overrun by a ferocious animal: the Chihuahua.

Stray Chihuahuas have taken over a neighborhood. Animal control officials say they're flooded with calls about the tiny terrors running wild.

There are so many, the city is asking neighbors to help catch the dogs, by corralling them in their yards, CNN reports.

These poor dogs were once one of the most popular pets to have. Foreclosures and the exodus of undocumented workers led to the huge amount of Chihuahuas being abandoned.
