Coyotes, raccoons, and... beagles?

Apparently the lovable dog species is the latest animal to go wild in New York. Packs of beagles have been seen roaming around parts of Eastern Long Island, attacking family pets and scaring residents.

The dogs are thought to be abandoned by hunters and forced to forage on their own.

One woman and her two pet dogs were forced to run for their lives after being set upon by one of the packs. They made it inside the woman's home with the beagles jumping after them, breaking part of her door.
