Packs of wild Chihuahuas terrorizing city

OK, that may be a bit of a stretch but cops say wild packs of Chihuahuas are causing quite a problem. 

Animal control workers in Maricopa County, Arizona, say they took over 6,000 calls from the Maryvale section of Phoenix complaining about abandoned Chihuahuas. 

That makes Chihuahuas the breed that ends up in their kennels the most. 

"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 told ABC 15 in Phoenix

“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,” she continued. 

Another problem is what to do once they round up the little critters. 

Most of the cities rescue facilities can’t take any new dogs because of overcrowding there and in their foster homes. 

However, residents want something done. They say packs of 8-12 of the hounds have been chasing their kids on the way to school. 

Officials are still working on a plan to deal with the dogs. 

And no, making a run for the border isn’t one of them.

  • On Black Friday, you’ll want to know which items to stand in line for, and which items to buy after the holiday season has passed. You can end up saving a lot of money (and time) by shopping smart as you weave your way through the crowds or shop online. They may not be the sexiest of gifts, but small and large home appliances often are priced to sell on Black Friday. From electric mixers and coffeemakers to refrigerators and dishwashers, says it’s worth checking out the deals on these items on Black Friday.While some analysts say January, leading up to the Super Bowl, is the best time to find a television at a good price, there are still plenty of TV deals on Black Friday. Keep in mind that lower-end models tend to be priced the most competitively, making Black Friday the perfect time to pick up a television for a second bedroom or the kids’ room. If you are looking for a high-end television, it’s better to wait until after Black Friday.: Shoppers will find many basic laptop models at bargain-basement prices on Black Friday. Power users looking for good deals on high-end laptops should wait until after Black Friday.The same logic applies to tablets. There will be plenty of Black Friday doorbusters featuring basic tablet models; just don’t expect steep discounts on iPads.says gaming system bundles should receive good discounts on Black Friday. In years past, gaming system bundles have been priced up to $50 off the regular price on Black Friday. The furniture sales cycle resets in the summer, so if you wait until Black Friday, you won’t be getting the best deals, according to . And while buying outdoor furniture in winter might seem like a wise plan, retail experts say most of that merchandise has been removed from the floor to make room for holiday items by Black Friday, so you won’t find great deals on the remaining products. Unless your child is hoping for one of this year’s hottest toys, it’s actually better to wait until Cyber Monday or early December to shop for toys, according to . The toy that is priced up to half-off on Black Friday may end up being priced up to 75 percent off if you wait.Avoid spending your shopping money on winter clothing during Black Friday, because it generally sells at a much deeper discount soon after the holiday season ends. You might think that the best time to purchase workout equipment is during Black Friday, but the biggest deals on fitness equipment actually take place right after the turn of the new year.: You can still get your husband that tool set he’s been wanting for Christmas, just wait to purchase it until December, when tools and equipment sell for the largest discounts.There are rarely good deals on gift card purchases on Black Friday. The Street says this is because gift cards are the gift choice of procrastinators, so wait until just before Christmas to score better deals. Although you might want to buy a few special ornaments or decorations for your house on Black Friday, plan ahead by purchasing next year’s décor right after Christmas, when seasonal items are sold at clearance prices.

  • For those wanting the traditional Thanksgiving feast but who can’t, or don’t want to, do the cooking there are a few restaurants in Tulsa that traditionally use the holiday as a way to thank their customers by offering a free meal. In Tulsa, Tally's Good Food Café at 11th and Yale has offered free Thanksgiving for 30 years; they'll feed people from 11:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Thursday. Owner Tally Alame tells KRMG he loves Thanksgiving, and loves throwing his doors open to all comers on the holiday. “Coming originally from Lebanon, I experienced Thanksgiving when I came to the country here, and it has to be my favorite time of the year. You can look back and see everything that we are thankful for, and so I just want to share my gratitude with my customers.” This year, he’s also thankful that his success is about to lead to a second location, at 61st and Sheridan. He had hoped to have it opened by Thanksgiving, but says he’ll have to delay until (tentatively) December 11th. Duffy’s Restaurant at 706 S. Elm Place will serve its free meal from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Owner Eddie Chammat tells KRMG it’s about thanking his customers, but also about providing a welcoming place for those who might otherwise be alone on the holiday. Batman's at Pine and Mingo offers free Subway Sandwiches and pie from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. Thanksgiving Day.
  • There is no snow in the immediate forecast, but that doesn't mean the city of Broken Arrow isn't hard at work getting ready for all contingencies. Communications Director Krista Flasch says street crews are going over routes and preparing for snow and ice. “Before people even think about winter weather, our crews are out there checking equipment and making sure it’s in working order,” Flasch said.  Broken Arrow has purchased three new snow plows to replace ones that were no longer working. They also have a new sand spreader. Flasch adds they’re also making sure the city and the school district are on the same page. The city may be ready for winter storms, but most residents we spoke to are hoping it will hold off.  One woman says there is no point in preparing for the snow in this state.  “We’re not really prepared at all,” the woman said.  “Oklahoma’s weather is really unpredictable, so we’re going to go with the flow.” Are you prepared for winter weather?  Let us know in the comments.
