A wolf-dog roaming the streets of Queens was picked up by animal control workers this week.

The three-year-old female was wearing a chain and collar and was found Wednesday near Elton Street and Vandalia Avenue in Ozone Park.

The wolf-dog isn't a wild animal, authorities say, but she was picked up because it's against the law to have a wolf hybrid as a pet in New York City.

Animal care officials say she has been acting timid and nervous because of the unfamiliar surroundings, but otherwise appears to be healthy.

Authorities did not release any information about her owners.
