CADDO PARISH, LA - Residents of one Caddo Parish, Louisiana neighborhood say they're battling an invasion of coyotes.
Last week a dog was mauled and nearly killed by one of the animals.
Dottie McWhiney says they've been lurking in her neighborhood, in her backyard, and even on the golf course across the street.
Her dachshund Dixie barely survived the attack.
Residents in the area think the coyotes are attracted to a nearby wildlife refuge.
They say the coyotes weren't around before the refuge moved in.
