A cute-but-ferocious beast was caught roaming the streets of Brooklyn--and it wasn't your ex.

It was an illegal wolf-dog hybrid, and it was caught roaming freely near Elton Street and Vandalia Avenue in East New York. No one has claimed the animal, according to the New York Post, who also reports that the wolf-dog is not a wild animal.

The three-year-old pup is currently being held at an animal care and control facility. A spokesman for the facility says that they're working with partners that have more experience with wolf-dog hybrids in order to properly handle the situation. Though the creature was wearing a collar, no owners have stepped up to claim the dog.
