CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Pack of coyotes spotted at north Scottsdale home

- Coyotes are a common sight across parts of Arizona. However, they sometimes they get a little too close to home.

A woman in north Scottsdale had three of them near her yard, and she caught it all on camera.

The pack's demeanor caught the woman off-guard.

"They're pretty common out here they're usually just by themselves, and again they scatter, they don't wanna stick around when we come up," said the woman, identified only as "Anna". She lives in the desert, on a few acres of property, so seeing the coyotes was nothing new.

"This was the first time I've ever actually seen the coyotes stand their ground," said Anna.

Perched on the rocks right by her driveway stood the pack of three full-grown coyotes

"They were all facing the same direction and just going crazy barking at something, but they weren't moving they were all seated and just standing their ground," said Anna.

The coyotes spotted Anna and surprisingly still didn't move. They just continued to howl.

"One of them started showing a little dominance. Like, he urinated then he fluffed up his fur, and he started kicking the grass and kind of marking it like his territory," said Anna.

Alas, the land was Anna's territory, so she stood her ground.

"I stood up, I just waved my hands and they scattered," said Anna.
