This morning, I spoke to a neighbor with her dog, who was recently followed all the way to Rose Scharlin Preschool on the Red Car Property by the noisy and annoying pack at night. She said other neighbors reported being chased by the same pack of dogs at night.
Earlier, I'd run into a couple of neighbors with their dogs who reported being attacked by the pack too. It was not their encounter with them.

Demonstrating their exceptional survival against coyote skills, the tiny vicious dogs raced circles, in opposite directions, around us, attempting to chase us off through annoyance. Between their relentless high-pitched barking, attempts to bite my dog from behind and the speed and coordination of their aggression, I can see where coyotes would just avoid them.
It started out as an amusing incident that quickly became annoying. Their owners had their front door open and knew the dogs were chasing people and dogs on the Red Car Property.
