A pet raccoon by the name of Rebekah has become an internet sensation and her owner is desperately trying to get her back after authorities took her away. Mark Brown from Gallatin, Tennessee raised the animal and posted a very popular video on YouTube of the two, and was reportedly close to scoring a reality show. But The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency came and took Rebekah away saying it was illegal to have a raccoon as a pet.

Brown is heartbroken and trying everything in his power to get the pet back, but so far the agency says a complaint from a neighbor forced them to come and take her away and that it would be unlawful to return her to Brown. I guess the law is the law.
