Mark Brown is a self-described "Hillbilly" YouTuber who lives in Tennessee and posts videos of himself passing some time with his adorable pet raccoon Rebekah. While Brown has racked up a few million views from his YouTube channel and seems to enjoy his internet fame, now he is facing an uphill battle to reclaim his Rebekah after an unexpected visit from the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency last week. According to WKRN-TV, Brown suspects the agency decided to seize his pet only after their video had recently gone viral, but a representative from the wildlife agency responded that it was a neighbor complaint that led to Rebekah's removal.
