PHOENIX -- Some residents in a Paradise Valley neighborhood are wary after discovering a pack of coyotes is living in a nearby wash.

They dead animals have been found near the wash and that's raising concerns for pet owners.

Arizona Game and Fish Department officials say coyotes can lure free-roaming dogs away from their owners to attack and bold coyotes may attack small dogs on retractable leashes.

A wildlife and pests specialist successfully trapped one of the coyotes Wednesday morning.

Residents tell Phoenix TV station KPHO that they are becoming more concerned now that the wild animals are breeding and producing pups behind their homes.

A litter of four or five pups is common for coyotes.
