A man whose pet raccoon was confiscated by wildlife officials last year has announced he is running for governor. Mark "Coonrippy" Brown, 55, of Gallatin, issued a petition for the office last month with intentions to challenge incumbent Gov. Bill Haslam in the Republican primary in August. He has yet to create an official campaign website. "This is all about the raccoon," Brown said. Brown gained national attention in July following the seizure of his pet raccoon, Rebekah, by Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency officials. The licensed firearms dealer and former city of Gallatin employee said he's not deterred by his lack of political experience and hopes to capitalise on his outsider status. "We've got to take this country back one state at a time," he said. "We live in the United States of the Offended — not the United States of America."
